After an elderly couple went online with a heartfelt appeal to save them from daily harassment by their son and daughter-in-law, the district administration in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh came to the rescue of the couple.
The victims (both aged 68) had recently shared a video on social media where they narrated how their son and daughter-in-law were forcing them to move out of their own house.
The 68-year-old man was identified as Indrajit Grover, who alleged that he was already dealing with heart problems, while his wife had got her knee replaced and was also a patient of arthritis, but despite their sufferings, the couple was troubled by the harassment on part of their son and daughter-in-law.

"Our son is unconcerned where we would go, whether we live or die," Grover said in the video.
"We are living in a house that we bought with our own hard-earned money. We have only one son and our daughter is married. Our son and daughter-in-law are harassing us," he added in the video.
