The Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued notices to the city police commissioner and others on the plea of an elderly couple from Nehru Vihar who was forced to live in a park after being allegedly thrown out from their house by their son and his wife.
"Issue notice to the police commissioner and other respondents (including son Mukesh Sharma and daughter-in-law Alpana)," justice Ajit Bharihoke said.
The court was hearing a petition filed by Ram Kishan Sharma, 69, and his spouse Pushpa, 65, who have allegedly been dispossessed of their flat at Nehru Vihar area in north Delhi on October 3.
Seeking protection from their son Mukesh, the couple in the petition said the police be directed to take punitive action against their son who had also been allegedly disowned by them in 2000.
The court has sought responses from the police and others and fixed the matter for further hearing on October 29.
