As per reports, the couple named Sanjeev Prasad and Sadhana Prasad got their son Shrey Sagar married to Shubhangi in the year 2016. The couple was sent for their honeymoon to Thailand but were mentally harassed every time they asked for a grandchild.
“They were wedded in 2016 in hopes of having grandchildren. We didn’t care about gender, just wanted a grandchild”, said father Sanjeev Prasad.
“We did everything for our child. We raised him in the best possible manner. We spent Rs 35 lakhs and sent him to the USA for his pilot training course, and spent extra Rs 20 lakhs for his posh lifestyle. Also, we bought an Audi car for him and his wife. The car cost us a loan worth Rs 65 lakhs. We got him married in 2016 so that he could continue our family name. But it’s been six years and they are not fulfilling our wish”, Shrey Sagar’s mother added.
The old couple accused their daughter-in-law of mentally harassing the mother-in-law for asking a grandchild.
“We are troubled financially and personally. We have taken a loan to build a house. We have demanded Rs 2.5 cr each from both my son and daughter-in-law in our petition”, the father added.
Advocate AK Shrivastava told the media that the case portrays the truth of society. “We invest in our children, make them capable of working in good firms. Children owe their parents basic financial care. The parents have demanded either a grandchild within a year or compensation of Rs 5 crores”, he confirmed.
The couple’s petition, which has been filed in Haridwar, is expected to be heard by a court on May 17.
