I can see them simultaneously but the second X server now has control of second mouse, which was expected  but first X server has lost the control of first mouse rather i would say that the first X server is freezed and i can not do any thing in the first screen.

If you're not able to start any application on the first X server then it's
likely an issue with video drivers (e.g. VGA routing). Otherwise, seems that
you're not assigning the right devices to X servers. Make sure you're using
evdev driver (assuming you're under Linux).
