New Delhi, Jan 30 (IANS) Two teenaged brothers who ran away from home 15 months ago after their parents forced them to work were found in Uttar Pradesh, police said Wednesday.

The boys, who wanted to study, were forced to work in a torch-making factory here by their parents. They were found in a school in Etah district in Uttar Pradesh, where they were studying.

"The siblings, aged 13 and 15 years, were rescued on Republic Day from Etah district in Uttar Pradesh. They were allowed to study in the school as they claimed that they were orphans. They used to stay in the school," Delhi' Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) S.B.S. Tyagi told IANS.

The brothers had run away from their house in Nihal Vihar in west Delhi in October 2011, Tyagi said.

Police traced them after the elder teenager called his mother Jan 24.

"They told us that they did not want to live with their parents as they stopped them from going to school," Tyagi said.

The boys have been sent to a child observation home in Dwarka in southwest Delhi.

After running away, they initially worked in a hotel for a few months. Seeing their desire to study, the hotel owner got them admitted to a school run by his relative.
