Youth wants to be sick father's guardian

A youth has moved a Delhi court pleading to appoint him the guardian of his 54-year-old ailing father.

According to Vineet Aggarwal his father is unable to take care of himself and manage his property. On the plea by Vineet of Mukherjee Nagar in North West Delhi, district judge A K Chawla has asked the medical superintendent of G B Pant Hospital to constitute a medical board to examine the physical and mental condition of applicant's father Ashok Aggarwal.

Vineet told the court his father was suffering from brain hemorrhage and paralysis and was bed-ridden and unable to speak.

Making the plea to the court as per the provisions of the Mental Health Act, Vineet told the court that his father owns several properties but was unable to sign any document and was wholly dependent on him and his family members. He also sought appointment of a medical expert to visit his residence and verify the mental and physical condition of his father.
