It was an ordeal for a 95-year-old woman who was taken out of the house by her son and left in the open four days ago.
Kanduru Ramalakshmamma had been lying on the bare floor outside her son’s house on the Sarvepalli canal bund here in the scorching heat. When the neighbours questioned her son, who is a lab technician at B.V. Nagar here, why he was torturing his mother, he warned them against any interference.
On receiving information, the Balajinagar police reached the spot and arranged a cot and a fan for the old woman.
When questioned, the family members tried to give explanation, but the police warned them against ill treating her or else a case would be lodged against them. After her husband’s death, Ms. Ramalakshmamma had been staying with her three sons in turns, each keeping her for three months.
She went to her third son’s house only ten days ago.
