Woman harassed by son, daughter-in-law gets back her flat in Thane

She was allegedly denied food, medicines and even beaten once.

A 76-year-old woman, who allegedly suffered harassment at the hands of her son and daughter-in- law, has got sole possession of her flat in Dombivili township after Thane Collector Mahendra Kalyankar, ruled in favour of her under Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act-2007.

The septuagenarian was working as a nurse in Kuwait and shifted to Mumbai about 8-9 years back. She later moved into a bigger flat bought by her in Dombivili along with her son and daughter-in-law in 2008.

The woman alleged that soon after, her son and his wife started harassing her and demanded that the house be transfered in her daughter-in-law’s name. She was also allegedly denied food, medicines and even beaten once.

NGO Damini Eagle Brigade activist and ‘Police Mitra’ member Sunita Kuttan said that the old woman, hailing from Kerala, approached the Manpada police regarding her
harassment.
