Bandra police on Saturday registered a first information report (FIR) against a local resident and his wife for allegedly harassing and beating the man’s 53-year-old mother.

According to the victim, Rafat Gholapkar, her 27-year-old son Saad and his wife Lubna, 26, had beaten her up when she refused to leave her own house.

In her statement to police, Gholapkar stated that she lived with her husband at Bazaar Road in Bandra (West). Her son had married Lubna in 2012 and initially lived separately, but the couple moved in with them after a few months and started fighting with the complainant.

She stated that when she tried complaining to her husband after the couple abused her, he did not pay any heed.

On May 17, the couple demanded that Gholapkar leave the house, to which she objected saying it was her house. The couple then allegedly started abusing her and beat her up. Following this, she approached the police

Advocate Mariam Tanveer Nizam, on behalf of the complainant, said, “This is a blatant case of domestic violence against women and a very unfortunate example of lack of support from the in-laws. We are grateful to Bandra Police for taking cognisance and booking the guilty.”
