Observing that children are ought to take care of their elderly parents, a trial court restrained a man and his wife from dispossessing his mother from her house saying he was entitled to take care of the elderly woman.

The court, however, said a case of domestic violence was not made out against the couple as there was only a single allegation that the aged woman was beaten and tortured by her son and daughter-in-law and this cannot constitute as an act of domestic violence.

"Apart from a single allegation of beating and torture given to her (woman) by both the respondents (son and his wife) after execution of Gift Deed by her in favour of her son in respect of property, she has not levelled any other allegations which can constitute an act of domestic violence under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence (PWDV) Act either physical, mental or economic," Metropolitan Magistrate Vandana Jain said.

The woman was living on the first floor of her house in Bihari Colony in east Delhi while her son and daughter-in-law were residing on the ground floor of the house purchased by her late husband, the woman said in her complaint.
