In the first-ever judgment passed by the Central District Tribunal against those guilty of ill-treating their aged parents, a 34-year-old finance manager was asked to vacate the house owned by his father within a week's time.
The judgment was passed under the new Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, implemented earlier this month.
The Delhi Police have been directed to ensure that the order is followed. Under the Act, errant children can face up to three months in jail and payment of a monthly sum of up to Rs 10,000 towards maintenance of their elderly parents.
The order was passed in a case filed by 72-year-old Komal Singh, a resident of LIG flats in Prasad Nagar, with the Karol Bagh sub-division on October 3 against his son Brijesh Kumar and daughter-in-law Manpreet Kaur.
Kumar works as a finance manager in an automobile firm, while his wife Manpreet Kaur is sales executive with the same firm. The couple and their five-year-old son lived with Singh and his 66-year-old wife Kamlesh, who is an invalid.
Singh had purchased the LIG flat with his savings. His son married Manpreet in 2003 and had promised to look for alternate accommodation within a month's time.
According to the complaint filed by Singh, the couple started harassing him and his wife soon after and also physically abused him. The complaint further stated that Kumar and his wife tried to evict him from his own house and barred Singh's daughters from visiting them. While Singh tried to reach a compromise with them, they did not agree. Singh had filed police complaints against the two earlier as well.
The tribunal has now asked the couple to vacate Singh's house within a week. The tribunal, in its judgment, also maintained that Singh himself should refrain from using abusive language and unnecessary meddling in his children's matter.
