Give us grandchild or USD650,000: Indian couple sues son

DEHRADUN, INDIA (AFP) – An Indian couple are taking their son to court demanding that he and his wife produce either a grandchild within a year or cough up almost USD650,000.

Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad said that they exhausted their savings raising and educating their pilot son and paying for a lavish wedding. Now they want payback.

“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,” the couple said in their petition filed with a court in Haridwar last week.

The compensation they are demanding – INR50 million – includes the cost of a wedding reception in a five-star hotel, a luxury car worth USD80,000 and paying for the couple’s honeymoon abroad, the Times of India reported yesterday.

The parents also forked out USD65,000 to get their son trained as a pilot in the United States only for him to return to India unemployed, the paper said.

“We also had to take a loan to build our house and now we are going through a lot of financial hardships,” the couple said in their petition.
