When the boy woke up, he found himself in a local hospital, where he was operated upon for a broken kneecap. He was discharged and sent home on October 30. Till then his parents were unaware about his whereabouts.

As the boy complained of pain on reaching home, he was rushed to a hospital in Madurai. An X-ray revealed a screw, which had broken into three pieces, was fitted to join the broken kneecap, causing the pain, the petitioner submitted.
