In a bizarre incident, a couple in Uttarakhand has left everyone shocked with their ridiculous court complaint. The couple has lodged a complaint against their own son and daughter-in-law, demanding they deliver either a grandchild or Rs 5 crore in compensation.
Based out of Haridwar, the parents claimed that they invested their life’s worth in sponsoring their son’s education in the United States. They had to take out loan to build their home, which left them financially destitute. Now, they have demanded their son and daughter-in-law to pay up in the form of either a grandchild or a penalty of Rs 2.5 crore each.
The couple’s advocate AK Srivastava mentioned that the case portrays the truth of modern society. “We invest in our children, make them capable of working in good firms. Children owe their parents basic financial care. The parents have demanded either a grandchild within a year or compensation of Rs 5 crores.” he said.
If you are also bamboozled by how having a grandchild will help in improving their financial condition, then you are not alone. Even Twitter was equally bamboozled by this bizarre lawsuit.
We wonder how does a grandchild fix their financial problems? Does it look like a shameful tactic to bully their child into giving the parents what they want? Do let us know what you think in the comments below.
