Coming to the rescue of a 72-year-old woman, a Delhi maintenance tribunal for elderly people has ordered her two sons to pay her a monthly maintenance sum and allow her to live in her house, from which she had been turned out.
The maintenance tribunal held that her two sons would pay Rs 4,000 each per month to their widowed mother, who would also be allowed to live in her own house. One of her sons had earlier driven her out.
Hitabhilashini Sharma had moved the tribunal seeking maintenance allowance and directions to her son to allow her to stay in her house.
She had alleged that both her sons were doing well for themselves — while one worked with All India Radio, the other lived in the US.
