The Prasads say that in addition to spending their savings on their son’s $65,000 driver training program and other expenses in the United States, they also supported him for another two years by paying for his Audi ( automobile), her wedding at the hotel in 2016 and her honeymoon in Thailand.

The parents also added that they had been patient enough with their son and daughter-in-law due to the lack of offspring.

“Even after two years, they never thought about having children and we left the decision up to them,” said Sanjeev, 61, a retired civil servant.

Srivastava said the Prasads eventually became so discouraged that they were constantly ashamed whenever they saw other people dropping off their grandchildren at bus stops.

“The filing accuses their son and his wife, who live in the southern city of Hyderabad, of neglecting their ‘duty to give them the pleasure of having either a grandson or a granddaughter,’ it added. the lawyer.
