Although the couple took care of him for two days, they grew suspicious and informed the Nisarpur police themselves. On interrogation, they confessed to have bought him. Meanwhile, the police was informed of a missing child in Dhamnod.
On sending the picture of the boy to the Dhamnod police, his parents recognised him immediately and he was brought back home.
