If you could post pictures of the plastron (underside) as well as the head and neck, that would help in identifying what type they are. Where are you located? Where did your brother acquire these?

They look like Indian Tent turtles. I'm not sure the specific type but research that species and you should be able to find out which kind they are specifically. Where did you get those? I've never seen them available before.

Both the turtles are same species since My brother got them form a guy who had these & few months back they hatched few more.
That guy also don't know what they are.
I tries to make them upside down & click a photo of the underside but could't do that since they twist back very fast.
But i have got another close-up which is more clear.
I stay in India

They don't look like the same species, its possible that the guy who hatches them has both species.

One of them is a male & one is Female So that's the reason why they look different. (That's What Think)
Coz i have been told that this a couple of turtles.

No, they are too young to sex. Males and females of both species, do not look different from one another. I'm certain you have 2 different species, both are native to the same area, with circumdata's range being a little smaller.
