A youth has moved a Delhi court, pleading to appoint him the guardian of his 54-year-old ailing and bed-ridden father as the latter was unable to take care of himself and manage his property.

On the plea by Vineet Aggarwal of Mukherjee Nagar in North West Delhi, district judge AK Chawla has asked the medical superintendent of GB Pant Hospital to constitute a medical board to examine the physical and mental condition of applicant's father Ashok Aggarwal.

Vineet told the court his father was suffering from brain hemorrhage and paralysis and was bed-ridden, besides being unable to speak.

Making the plea to the court as per the provisions of the Mental Health Act, Vineet told the court that his father owns several properties but was unable to sign any document and was wholly dependent upon him and his family members.
