Delhi woman dies after being slapped by son: A CCTV camera caught a Delhi woman being slapped by her son in the capital city’s Dwaraka area. The 76-year-old woman was declared dead on arrival after she was taken to the hospital following the reported assault.  The video of this incident shows a man standing outside a house with two women. He then slaps the older woman, reported to be his mother who instantly falls down on the ground.

The police have now lodged a case under section 304 (punishment for culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the deceased woman’s son at the Bindapur police station.

A senior police official said that the woman’s son was confronting his mother over picking a fight with the neighbours. An argument followed, which led to the Delhi woman being slapped by her son, Ranbir. The woman had had an argument with a neighbour regarding parking of vehicles. On Monday, their neighbour had made a PCR call to the police but later claimed that the matter was resolved and didn’t file any complaint.

Following the incident, the elderly woman, named Avtar Kaur, was immediately admitted to the hospital, where she was declared dead by the doctors.

In October last year, a video of an elderly woman being allegedly assaulted by her daughter-in-law and the accused’s mother went viral. The woman’s husband had been working in Saudi for the past 10 years. The daughter-in-law had been reportedly abusing the elderly woman for quite some time. Read more on that here.
