My life is under threat from my own son: Gony's mother

Last updated on: July 01, 2008 20:01 IST

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.

"After the IPL was over and before the Asia Cup he came to the house and took away his belongings and tried to beat me up," she further alleged.

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.
