The Delhi Com­mis­sion for Women (DCW) on Fri­day res­cued a 95year-old woman who was al­legedly be­ing held cap­tive by her daugh­ter-in-law.

The move came af­ter the DCW helpline re­ceived a call from a per­son com­plain­ing that his old mother was be­ing held cap­tive and tor­tured by his wife and in-laws. The com­plainant also in­formed that his mother is com­pletely bedrid­den. He fur­ther stated that he and his wife are hav­ing mat­ri­mo­nial dis­cord since they got mar­ried and that he has not seen his mother for the last three months.

The com­plainant men­tioned that when­ever he tries to meet his mother, he is forced to take help from the lo­cal po­lice as his wife does not let him en­ter the house.
