Legal services’ officials rescue woman abandoned by children | Hyderabad News


Hyderabad: The district legal services authority (DLSA) officials of Nizamabad on Saturday rescued a 90-year-old woman who was abandoned by her kin.
The woman was found lying opposite to the police commissioner’s office. A group of young people who were running a voluntary organisation, Indur Yuvatha Association, informed DLSA secretary Kiran Mahi about the plight of the woman who was begging for food in the town for the last few weeks and had collapsed three days ago.
As per the directions of the DLSA chairperson and principal district judge Sai Rama Devi, the woman was shifted to the local government hospital.
Padma Singh, a paralegal volunteer and revenue officials who were entrusted with the task of tracing the kin of the woman, found that the name of the old woman is Nagubai and that she has two sons and a daughter. Nagubai was living at her younger son’s house. However, both the son and daughter ill-treated the woman. The daughter was miffed with her mother because she gave her one acre land to the younger son, who later abandoned her. The officials summoned Nagubai’s children and counselled them.
There were injuries on the hands of the mother. She did not complain against her children, but said that she was happy to see them and claimed that she had sustained the injuries when she fell on the road, officials said.
Meanwhile, the younger son agreed to look after her and took her home. The officials fixed a counselling session next week for the daughter who had allegedly beaten up her mother.
