Indian couple sue their son for £530,000 for failing to produce a grandchild after splashing all their savings on his lavish wedding and US pilot training
A retired Indian couple are taking their only son to court for more than £500,000 as they cm his failure to produce a grandchild has caused them 'mental agony'.
Sajneev Prasad, 61, and wife Sadhana, 57, filed a petition ag inst son Shrey Sagar and his wife Shubhangi, who married in 2016 and do not have any children.
61歲的Sajneev Prasad和57歲的妻子Sadhana對2016年結婚的兒子Shrey Sagar和妻子Shubhangi提起了訴訟，稱他們沒有生育孩子。
The marriage was arranged and they were even sent to Thailand for their honeymoon to produce an heir, Sajneev said.
Shrey and Shubhangi must have a child within a year or pay up, the parents cm.
Pilot Shrey was trained in the US at his parents' considerable expense. He returned to India in 2007 as the recession caused an industry slowdown.
Shrey has since worked as a pilot in India - and lives separately from Shubhangi, who also works.
The mother and father gifted the couple an Audi worth £63,000 and paid for their luxurious wedding reception at a five-star hel.
They cm they've spent 25million rupees (£265,000) on their son since he was born.
They now want the exact same amount back - and another 25million in dges.
'We killed our dreams to raise him', Sajneev told The National World.
'It is a dream of every parent to become a grandparent. We had been waiting for years to become grandparents.
'We had been trying to convince our son and his wife but they paid no heed to our demands. We are heartbroken that we will die without seeing [a] grandchild.'
Sajneev also wre in the parents' court submission: 'My son has been married for six years but they are still not planning a baby. At least if we have a grandchild to spend time with, our pain will become bearable.
'We also had to take a loan to build our house and now we are going through a lot of financial hardships. Mentally too we are quite disturbed because we are living alone.'
The charge submitted to Haridwar District Court was listed as 'mental agony and harassment'.
It is technically labelled a 'domestic violence' case.

Absolutely not their business. Hope they lose. It's the sons and his wife's choice.

It's none of their business what they're adult son does. He has no contractual obligation to them.

What a strange request. I hope the kids continue to live their lives the way they want and not how mum and dad want.

Some parents, regardless of culture, view their children as interest-bearing accounts.

I'm tired of parents who expect their children to live for the parent-raise them and maybe they will return your love-but there are no guarantees. Children have the to live their own lives as adults. If you want a grandchild so badly, adopt one.

Even if they decide to have a child I doubt the son will want his presents anywhere near them anymore

He's not legally obliged to produce an heir you fools !
Didn't know people could be taken to court for such things. What law has he broken ?
