Baby tortois
Did you actually see the rat attacking them ? I am worried that they actually did attack each other. The one is way smaller which is a most common sign of bulling. They SHOULD NOT BE "HOUSED" TOGETHER. If you look on the forum I have posted a tragic report of baby torts eating each other. They need a proper housing. Did your vet give you the medication ? The wounds on their front legs look more like a wounds from friction which again makes me think this is no rat bites. Rat bites would leave deep wounds they would not be evenly distributed. Please seek a professional help. They need way more than wound ointment.

We didn't see a rat attacking them but we know that a rat lives in our house we see that rat so we thought that the rat attacked them we think that the rat was came at night after 1 pm and attack them we saw the tortoise at night at 3 pm and they were both living with eachother since 6 months and they never try bite anything or attack anything
 
Any updates?
You should try leaving them in seperate enclosures. They do not need to be paired together as it will cause stress for them. I would seperate them, soak them in warm water for 20-30 mins a day and get them the additional lighting that they need. they need substrate and uvb/basking light. Please make corrects Pooja.

Yes I am already soak them in water for 4 time a day I don't think that I would separate them because that will cause more fear for each one and they are sleeping with eachother so I don't wanna separate them and I'm from India so we always get good sunlight so I don't think I need uv light

Do you keep them outside every day to get uvb?
Also, what are you feeding them?
Need to make sure you are properly caring for them so they can thrive and be happy..
Send some updated pictures on them when there are improvements! Would love to see how they are doing Pooj

Okay great,
looking forward to seeing some updates! Try giving them a variety diet with leafy greens along with what you are already giving them. Feed cucumber in moderation you can download the tortoisetable.org to see what is fed in moderation, what is safe. Please refer to this guide for variety it is recommended.
