HYDERABAD: Three guys were reserved for supposedly refusing to look after their elderly father after breaking his home among themselves in Siddipet district.
Pothu Mallayya, 79, of Shankarnagar at Madhira village beneath Koheda police station split his property with one of his three sons. The 3 brothers inherited land worth Rs 1 crore each from their dad.
Although the village elders and the local authorities counselled the 3 men, elderly, 52, 48 and 45 to look after their dad, they denied.
The older person approached Husnabad Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO) and registered a complaint. The RDO tried to convince the trio but not one of them was prepared to take their dad home.
For the last one year, Mallayya was residing on the food provided to him from the villagers. Considering his pitiable state, the villagers joined him at an old age home at Ankireddypalli beneath Chinnakodur police station limits. As his health deteriorated during the last one month, Mallayya was admitted to a government hospital in Siddipet five days past.
The villagers also apprised Kodeda sub-inspector Raj Kumar concerning the status of Mallayya. Although the police educated their sons concerning the health of his dad, not one of them visited him at the hospital.
Afterwards, the village earnings officer (VRO) lodged a formal complaint with the authorities about the mindset of their sons towards their dad following which they had been detained on August 5 and were sent to judicial remand.
“It is the obligation of the kids to look after their own parents. The sons refused to do this. We’ll take necessary action against kids if any more instances come to our notice,” SI Raj Kumar stated.
