Sources said Sibhu Murmu lost his both legs in a train accident at Lucknow and was admitted at St. George Medical Hospital, Lucknow on January 29, 2016 but nobody knew about his proper identity and address as Murmu cannot speak Hindi and other languages.

The Kokrajhar Deputy Commissioner contacted the office bearers of the Discovery Club to collect the missing report of boys and accordingly, they got the missing report from Jitpur village of Bishmuri.

Discovery Club (NGO) and All Adivasi Students’ Association of Assam (AASAA), Kokrajhar, traced the family of the boy.
