Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!You could have a linkage issue or bad latches but it may be something simple that won't require an actual repair.Child protection locks on the back doors will prevent them from opening from the inside if they are engaged. Have you ensured child protection locks have not been engaged?

I don't know because this car I bought only recently and it is used car. So I took to local garage and he checked and told both the door locks to be changed.

It's definitely possible that the latches have failed. If the linkage from the inside handles is intact and child protection locks are not engaged then that does indicate latch failure.
