95-yr-old woman, held captive by daughter-in-law, rescued
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.
