A 70-year-old woman, who was earlier abandoned by her younger son and rescued from a locked room in Kanwas region of Kota 12 days ago, has finally been taken over by her elder son to his house.

Pannabai Abir (70) was living in Apna Ghar shelter home in Kota after being rescued from the locked room on January 11. Apna Ghar and another organisation Human Helpline had jointly rescued her with the help of the local police.

Manoj Jain Adinath, founder of Human Helpline said, that the elder son Beniram (50), a farmer in Kanwas, came to Apna Ghar, where he gave the affidavit in presence of two witnesses, of keeping his mother with him.

“I am ashamed of what my younger brother did to my mother. He committed a mistake and I will make up to my mother. I have decided to take her to my house,” said Beniram.

Coordinator of Apna Ghar, Rajkaumar Sharma said that the younger son, Narendra (35) came a few days ago to meet his mother, but she refused to meet him.

Narendra is a property dealer and his wife is a school teacher in Jhalawar. According to Narendra, he was shifting to Jhalawar and had left his mother in Kanwas with a caretaker. But no caretaker was seen when the elderly woman was rescued.
