In a shocking incident in capital, a woman was caught throwing her two-year-old toddler off the stairs in a fit of rage in CCTV camera. The news came into the light when the grandmother of the child revealed that it was a quarrel over property that led to violence from her daughter-in-law.
Reportedly, the grandmother Mamlesh Gupta revealed that the mother would often threaten to kill her son in regular fights. “I have only one son. On 9th July he would complete his five years of marriage. It was a love marriage, but trouble began to surface within a week of their marriage,” said Mamlesh.
For more than five years the family has never had peace of mind due to constant rifts and violence talking place regularly over property.
“I was always trying to explain her, but my appeal was falling on deaf ears. She wanted the property to be named to her. She would beat me too. Whenever she’d pick a fight I would tell her, I have just one son, everything is yours and after me, it is all going to you. Her father-in-law would also convince her of the same. But she wouldn’t stop screaming,” she said.
Matters began to grow worse five months back Mamlesh said. “She wouldn’t stop threatening us. 5 months back she lodged a complaint against us, but a settlement followed and we came back. Fearing the state of affairs I installed CCTV camera, so that I have enough evidence in the case of misery.”
Talking about the incident Gupta said her daughter in law started screaming and threatening her husband that she would kill her son and frame the entire family, and thus flung their grandson off the stairs. “Our maid was washing clothes when she saw her mother dragging him and rushed to bring him up the stairs.”
Pul Prahladpur Police station was informed about the case on January 24, at around 6 pm. It was alleged that one child was thrown from the staircase of house at first floor. The Police reached the location and took the complaint of Nitin Gupta, father of the child.
Anshu was medically examined the same day and some blunt injury was found. Action has been taken against the mother in this matter.
