Protection

An elderly couple on Monday petitioned the district collector seeking protection from their son and daughter-in-law, during the grievance day meet held at the collectorate here on Monday

V R Joseph (72)and Alice (68), residents of Madukkarai, in their petition alleged that they were being harassed and threatened by their son and daughter-in-law demanding transfer of their property worth Rs 1.5 crore.

“It is unfortunate to come and complaint against our son and daughter-in-law. But we fear for our life and property due to continuous mental and physical harassment from them,” rued Joseph.

The aged couple, who have two sons and a daughter, had already bequeathed a part of their fabrication workshop to their son V J Antony. However now Antony and his wife were demanding all their assets, including the workshop, house and other properties, he alleged.

“It has been 41 years since they migrated to Coimbatore from Kerala. We made everything from the scratch and raised our children. However now my son and daughter-in- law harass and threaten us to give away the properties to them,” said Alice.

Since it was a family matter they did not want to make the issue public. But they decided to seek protection after their son and daughter-in-law started threatening to take to every court to get the property, she added. Now we fear for our life and property. So we want adequate protection, Alice added.

Despite efforts to contact V J Antony, he was not available for comments.
