Akshit and Akshita Sharma, New Delhi
Akshita Sharma (16) and Akshit Sharma (13) were recognised for fearlessly confronting two miscreants who had broken into their house, and capturing one of them. The brother and sister duo were returning from school on December 8 last year to their home in Malviya Nagar when they found the iron door of their ground floor home open. They peeped through the window and saw two burglars. When they entered, the burglars tried to escape but the duo managed to catch one of them. Taking the bag from him, they raised an alarm, following which some neighbours came and called the police.
