Gujarat: 25-year-old man booked under Parents and Senior Citizen Act for forcing grandmother to beg on street

According to the FIR filed by PSI SK Barad of Anandnagar police, the grandmother — Tara Solanki, a resident of Shrinanadnagar in Vejalpur, was a beggar. Despite her age, her daughter’s son, Jigar Vadashara, used to drop her at Shyamal Crossroads to beg.

The Ahmedabad police on Tuesday booked a 25-year-old man under Parents and Senior Citizens act along with charges of creating public nuisance under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections for forcing his 70-year-old grandmother to beg on streets every day at Shyamal Crossroads.

Reportedly, Gujarat ADGP Anil Pratham saved a 70-year-old woman as he spotted the old woman begging near Shyamal Crossroads in the city. As he inquired the old woman, she revealed that her 25-year-old grandson had dropped her off at the junction so she could beg for a living.

Immediately, Pratham called 108 emergency service to get her condition checked, then he called the police control room. The Anandnagar SHE team led by PSI SK Barad rushed to the spot.
