Controversy Complaint Filed for Harassing Her Father
In 2015, Shweta returned from Germany to India and shifted to her parents’ house. Since her mother’s demise, her father was living alone in the house, and two maids were taking care of his household work and medications. According to her father’s complaint, Shweta came to his house without any intimation and within a few days, she started ill-treating him. Her father further said that she even demanded a share in his property. Later, the Welfare Tribunal and Deputy Collector of Mumbai ordered Shweta to vacate her father’s house. Shweta then filed a petition in the Bombay High Court in which she challenged the order of the Welfare Tribunal and Deputy Collector of Mumbai. After a few hearings, the court released an order. [3]The Tribune The order reads,
“Till the father is alive, the singer has no right to claim a share in his property. Shweta demands her share. What is her ‘share’ while he is alive? She has none. He (father) may indeed give his flat and all wealth away inter vivos. That is his choice. She cannot prevent him from doing so. So long as he is alive, Shweta has no ‘share’ in his property. In case after case, we have complaints from senior citizens that their own sons and daughters are harassing them. In every case, the harassment is an attempt to somehow grab the senior citizen’s property in his or her lifetime without a thought spared to the mental or physical health, well-being or happiness of these seniors.”
