The mother of Ravi Kant Sharma, senior Indian Police Service officer (Haryana cadre) and prime accused in journalist Shivani Bhatnagar's murder, on Tuesday accused him of trying to keep her away from the house she owns in Panchkula near Haryana.
Widow Kamla Sharma, 80, also said Sharma made her sign some papers when she had gone to visit him in Tihar jail recently. "His attitude towards me was not very good...when he had come to Panchkula in connection with his daughter's marriage, I told him to ask Madhu (her daughter-in-law) to vacate the house, but he did not give a positive reply," Kamla said in Chandigarh.
She accused daughter-in-law Madhu Sharma of ill-treating her. "She has forcibly occupied my house, which my husband G D Sharma had left in my name. Several times I told Madhu to vacate my house, but she never listens and rebukes me," Kamla, who now lives with her daughter Sudha Joshi, said.
Two heart attacks recently have left her too weak to persue any legal action aginst the couple. "However, if they don't vacate my house, I will write to Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, Haryana Police DGP and urge them to help restore my house to me," she said.
Kamla Sharma also alleged that the fixed deposits and some certificates amounting to Rs 250,000, which were in her name, had also been taken away from her by son and daughter-in-law.
She said in case the house is restored to her then she would stay with her neighbours. "I will be happy to pass my last days in peace with them (neighbours). I don't want anyone else there," she said.
Asked if she had known about her son's alleged involvement with Shivani, she said she was never aware of it. "I think Madhu Sharma is behind it (the murder)."
