Bantwal: Ill treatment by son, his wife – elderly woman rescued, hospitalised

Daijiworld Media Network – Bantwal (MS)

Bantwal, Jul 7: A complaint is filed against her son and daughter-in-law by a 70-year-old woman of ill treatment in the form of abuses, not providing food and cursing her to die.

Complainant Girija (70), wife of late Longappa Poojary, lives with her son Hariram and daughter-in-law Pooja. She slipped and fell on January 10, 2020 and was not given any treatment by son and daughter-in-law, according to the complaint. Because of the injury from the fall, Girija was bed-ridden. She was put in one part of the bathroom and was given food only one time and one tea.

In addition, Hariram and Pooja used to curse her that she was not dying soon. When elderly Girija used to beg for food out of hunger, the daughter-in-law used to say that she will not give food and was asking her mother in law to eat mud in Tulu language.

On July 6, the matter came to the knowledge of senior citizens committee and they took the elderly woman to Wenlock Hospital after providing first aid.

Bantwal police are investigating further.

    What goes around ...comes around. Today you did like this to your mother....tomorrow your children will do the same to you. Many Daughter in law's are the ones who poison the minds of husbands and seperate them, they dont even ask their husbands to give money to his parents. A recently married lady was saying to mother in law DO NOT DARE TO ASK MONEY WITH MY HUSBAND (mother wanted to repay the loan for renovating the house)....He is my husband....Even i have to save for my family....etc.....etc. Are those tears are good for such ladies ? But, these DIL's give full money to their parents......dont do this. Karma follows....Give respect to your elders....Dont invite God's wrath on you and your generations...

    I agree Now a days very rare to get a daughter in law like a daughter Because education occupies the place . They don't know the scriptures nor god's power Only when they land up in sickness then they have to realise the past But they go for doctors Real cause is the past This sickness is a curse from parents No doctors can treat

    For every 2 goshales govt must build at least one old age home... There are many elders suffering in the hands of their own... Own totally forget the painful contributions by the elders in their upbringing... But govt must awaken and introduce minimum one old age home for every taluk... One trust can be formed with retired judges and teachers as members and public donations must be requested for... If properly managed this project can be a blessing for our society...
