Man, Wife Get 2-Year Jail For Throwing Mother Out From Her House

A court in Telangana's Rangareddy district on July 22, 2019, convicted a man and his wife for throwing his mother out of her house and threatening and insulting her.

The Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court found the couple guilty and sentenced them to two years of rigorous imprisonment and a penalty of Rs 10,000 each.

Prema Kumari, a resident of Neredmet in Secunderabad, had approached the police in 2015 after her elder son, Amit and his wife, Lavanya, had illegally taken possession of her house and kicked her out.

In 2015, Amit and Lavanya had shifted from their home to Prema's house and allegedly locked her out.

“My elder son has threatened to kill me if I ask about the house. He claims that it is his property and abused me in very vulgar language. My life has been threatened and my elder son Amit would be responsible for it,” Prema's complaint reportedly stated.

The police registered a case under Sections 341 (Wrongful restraint), 471 (Using as genuine a forged document or electronic record), 506 (Criminal intimidation) and 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, and arrested the couple and filed a chargesheet.

Delivering the verdict, the court said that Prema, who was living with her other children, could now return to her home.
