//This is called eMpower modern indian women;
we should ask, women and child welfare minister Renuka chodre for this; as she support all modern women;
they do not have respect for senior citizens;
Indian laws are totally biased against old parents and men;
As per indian law whatever modern women do is Right.
A 75-year-old woman was on Friday morning allegedly battered by her daughter-in-law and grand-daughter for objecting to the demolition of a wall at her apartment in Nirmal building, Santacruz. The woman owns the four-storey building on North Avenue Road but the property has now been divided among her, her four sons and a daughter. Though her children and their families live in the same building, her calls for help went unanswered.

She later called up one of her sons and her daughter to inform them of what happened. Then she went to register a complaint at Santacruz police station where she was made to wait though blood was oozing from the injuries to her head. Fortunately, a relative passing by saw her and took her to a hospital. Eventually, a complaint was registered at 7 pm, around eight hours after the alleged assault.
According to the police, Nirmal Kaur Randhir Singh Anand, 75, lives on the second floor of Nirmal Building on North Avenue Road, Santa Cruz (west). The ground-plus-three-storey building has seven flats and is in the name of Nirmal. After her husband’s death in 1981, her four sons and a daughter fought over the property. In 2005, the Bombay High Court passed an interim order giving an apartment each to Nirmal, her sons and daughter pending a final settlement.
One of her sons, Devinder Singh, died in 2001. His wife Inderpreet Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 39, daughter Rashnin Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 17, and Gurjot live in one of the apartments in the building.
According to Nirmal’s complaint, around 10.15 am on Friday, she noticed three men trying to break a wall of her apartment. When she objected, they stopped the work and left.

However, within minutes, she alleged that her daughter-in-law Inderpreet Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 39, and grand-daughter Rashnin Kaur Devinder Singh Anand, 17, came to her apartment and assaulted her with a stick.
Nirmal alleged, “They grabbed my hair and put me down on the floor. They then hit my face and head with a stick. I started bleeding and soon fell unconscious. When I came to my senses, I went to the police station to lodge a complaint and also called my daughter Paramjit.”
Paramjit said, “I rushed to the police station from my Andheri residence as soon as my mother called. We were very disturbed by whatever she told us.”
RELATIVE HELPS OUT
At the police station, she was made to wait even though she was bleeding from the head. She was sitting outside when a relative saw her.

A D Singh, a well-known fashion designer, said, “I was passing by when I saw her sitting in the police station. I noticed that she was bleeding. I immediately stopped, went to her and took her to Cooper Hospital.”
While she was being attended to by doctors, Nirmal’s son Narender Singh who was not at home when the alleged incident happened reached there. He said, “My father never beat my mother in his entire life. This is a heinous crime and justice should be done to my mother.”
Sub-inspector Shashikant Padve, Santacruz police station, said, “We have registered a case of assault against Inderpreet and her daughter.”
Inderpreet said she was in the police station when Mumbai Mirror called and refused to talk about the allegations.
