India's rising cricketer Manpreet Gony on Tuesday landed in an awkward situation, with his mother levelling a serious allegation against him, saying that the Punjab pacer is threatening to kill her.
Mohinder Kaur told reporters that Gony is being instigated by his in-laws.
"I am pained to tell my plight through media, and that too about my own son. Shortly before he left for Asia Cup in Pakistan, Manpreet, along with a few of his relatives from his in-laws side, came to my house and threatened to kill me," Mohinder Kaur told reporters at her home in Mohali.
Gony, who married a girl outside her caste, has been living with his wife and mother-in-law in Mohali ever since his 16-day old son died over a year back.
"Gony's mother-in-law is a very greedy woman. She first ousted her husband out of her house in Mohali and now she has put my son under some evil spirits. I do not know what her motive is, but she is spoiling my son and taking him away from me," Kaur claimed.
Asked why she is not lodging a police complaint, she replied, "This will spoil my son's career."
Meanwhile, Gony's wife refuted all the allegations while her mother-in-law was unavailable for comment.
Gony is currently in Pakistan with the Indian cricket squad taking part in the Asia Cup.
