A couple in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand are suing their only son and wife for not giving them grandchildren after six years of marriage. Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad, 61 and 57, said they spent their savings on raising their son and paying for his pilot training and lavish wedding. They are demanding nearly $650,000 in compensation if no grandchildren are born within a year. The son and his wife did not appear to have commented. This highly unusual lawsuit was filed on the grounds of "mental abuse".[1]

Prasad said he had spent all his savings on his son, sending him to the US in 2006 for pilot training at a cost of $65,000. The son returned to India in 2007, but lost his job and his family had to support him financially for more than two years, reports the Times of India. Shrey Sagar, 35, has finally landed a job as a pilot. His parents said they arranged his marriage to Shubhangi Sinha, now 31, in 2016, in the hope that they would have "grandchildren to play with" in their old age.[2]

The parents said they paid for a wedding reception at a five-star hotel, an $80,000 luxury car and a honeymoon abroad. "My son has been married for six years but is not planning on having a baby yet," said Prasad. "At least if we have grandchildren to spend time with, our suffering will be bearable." The couple's lawyer, AK Srivastava, told The National that the couple were seeking damages "for mental atrocities". "It's every parent's dream to be a grandparent. They've been waiting for years to have grandchildren." The couple's petition, filed in Haridwar, is scheduled to go up to trial on May 17. The son and his wife did not appear to have commented.[3] And if you have any legal issue with this topic, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be happy to assist you.
