In a similar case reported from Mumbai, the Bombay High Court came to the rescue of an elderly couple, by asking their daughter-in-law to vacate their Bandra residence within a month’s time as she was allegedly harassing them. Earlier, the 44-year-old accused woman’s husband was ordered by a trial court to search for an apartment but the woman allegedly said no to as many as 49 flats that he had shortlisted. Following this, the HC ordered her to find an apartment herself within a given budget.
In October last year, justice Shalini Phansalkar Joshi said that it would be cruel to allow the elderly couple to continue to suffer the harassment caused by their daughter-in-law. However, the couple was finally given a respite by the Bombay HC.
