M Sivakamasundari, daughter-in-law of DMK leader M Karunanidhi, created a buzz on Monday when she submitted a petition to Police Commissioner S George alleging that her son was trying to usurp her property valued at around Rs 12 crore. 

However, her husband and Karunanidhi’s eldest son M K Muthu denied his wife’s claims and said she was instigated to file complaint by “others”.

Speaking to reporters, Sivakamasundari (65) alleged that her son M K M Arivunithi managed to convince her and her husband to move out of their house in Gopalapuram some years ago, claiming that it would bring in high amounts in rent.

“But he never gave the rent to us and we have been living in a small house in Kanathur after we were moved out,” she said.

She also alleged that her daughter-in-law Poonodi and her mother Yogamangalam were torturing her for property, cash and jewels.

In her petition submitted to the police Commissioner, she sought protection from her family members and also demanded action against them.

Meanwhile, in a statement, Muthu said his wife had not been keeping well for some months and was suffering from memory lapses. “She underwent neurosurgery after she became unconscious and fell, injuring her head,” he added.

Muthu alleged that his wife had lodged the complaint on someone’s instigation. He further declared that his family would soon try to settle the problems amicably.
