COIMBATORE: An octogenarian from Jothipuram petitioned Coimbatore Collector M Karunakaran on Monday seeking action against his son who expropriated his house and abandoned him.
In his petition, 86-year-old N Jegannathan from Vijaya Nagar in Jothipuram said “I am a father of five and a retired mill worker. I am an asthma patient and also have hearing problem. When my wife died in 1995, one of my sons Parthasarathy changed the ownership of a lorry belonging to us into his wife’s name. He expropriated my house and prevented me from entering the house. He had also assaulted me.”
Seeing my condition, my daughter took me to her house.
“Then my son prepared fake documents stating that I have taken a loan from him, came to my daughter’s house and threatened me of dire consequences,” he said in his petition adding, “I have been fighting against my son for the past 10 years. In my old age, I am not able to fight against him anymore.”
