The couple and Mukhwan’s wife started molesting him.
An elderly Indian has alleged that he was brutally beaten by his wife, son and daughter-in-law to force him to transfer his fortune in their name.
Mukhwant Singh, a resident of Panvel near Mumbai, said he was beaten until he was bleeding.
The victim told police that he has been in another apartment outside of his family since November 2019.
His son married a woman named Prabhjeet Kaur on February 14, 2017. Mukhwant announced that Kaur had agreed to marry his son after saying he was a successful man with a spacious apartment and a car.
However, Kaur later discovered that the actual owner of the apartment was her father-in-law, not her husband.
As a result, Kaur felt betrayed in their marriage. She later suggested that her father-in-law move to another apartment and said that the rent would be paid by her and her husband.
On June 16, 2020, the couple filed a lawsuit against Mukhwant, asking him to transfer his earnings and property into their names.
When he refused to move out of his home, the couple and Mukhwan’s wife started molesting him.
On September 29, 2020, the Indian heard a knock on his door. When he answered, his wife rushed in.
Mukhwant tried to stop her and told her that she could only enter if she had a court order.
Kaur then stormed into the house and the two women started beating him. The victim’s son came and attacked his father, causing him to fall.
When he was on the floor, the son pulled a wooden stand that was used to support the mosquito net and hit his father with it.
The nails on the stand caused Mukhwant to suffer deep cuts.
The three suspects later fled with Mukhwan’s belongings and documents, despite requesting that they return his belongings.
The neighbors heard the commotion and went in to find the injured victim. They took him to the hospital.
He was treated and the severity of the attack resulted in permanent nerve damage to his left hand and right leg.
Mukhwant was later released, but did not file a lawsuit against the suspects until November 16, 2020.
He accused his wife, son and daughter-in-law of attempted murder and robbery. The police have confirmed that a case has been recorded and an investigation is ongoing.
