Meanwhile, an NGO, Association for People with Disabilities has come forward to help the boy.
Amid all this, the boy’s movements are confined to home, he no longer goes to school and remains mum.
“ I do not know what is going on in his mind, the boy who used to talk and play, has gone silent. I am poor man and doing everything I could to help my nephew, but thinking of future, my mind goes blank”, he says wiping the tear as he tightly holds hand of the boy.
