- According to the victim, the problem started after her husband died in 1995
Mumbai, Sep 13: Premlata Chavan, an 80-year-old resident of Shanti Campus Cooperative Society in Mulund had lost all hope of going back home after being evicted by her son and daughter-in-law. But after a nine-year long fight in the 27th Mulund Magistrate court she finally got a positive result on August 16 when the court gave verdict to convict her son and daughter-in-law.
However, her son Prakash and daughter-in-law Kalpana pleaded the court to be lenient and settled to sign a bond wherein they promised to treat their mother well. Hardly a month after signing the bond, the couple appealed at the Sessions court for a stay order on the lower court’s verdict claiming that the case made against them was false.
The Sessions court on Monday adjourned their appeal and put the case for next hearing on October 19. “We have not received any notification from the Sessions court about the stay orders. Instead the case has been adjourned to next date in October 19,” said Premalata’s advocate Harshad Desai.
Premlata told DNA that the promise made by Prakash and Kalpana just remained on papers. She said, “After the court’s verdict though I got entry into the house, my life became miserable as they stopped giving me food and also stopped me from entering into the kitchen to prepare food for myself. They also harassed me mentally and physically.”
