In a bizarre case, a couple has sued their son and daughter-in-law in a court in Uttrakhand’s Haridwar. They are demanding either a grandchild or ₹5 crore compensation.
The petitioners argued that they invested all their money in his son’s education and building the home, and now they are financially broken. They have demanded ₹ 2.5 crores each from their son and daughter-in-law.
“We got them married in 2016 in the hopes of having grandchildren. We didn’t care about gender, we just wanted a grandchild,” said the petitioner Mr Prasad.
He added, “I gave my son all my money, got him trained in America. I don’t have any money now. We have taken a loan from bank to build home. We’re troubled financially and personally. We have demanded ₹ 2.5 crore each from my son and daughter-in-law in our petition.”
Advocate AK Srivastava representing the parents stated that the present case portrays the truth of society.
“We invest in our children, make them capable of working in good firms. Children owe their parents basic financial care. The parents have demanded either a grandchild within a year or compensation of ₹ 5 crore,” Srivastava said.
