Couple 'forcibly separated' by children for properties

The helpline for senior citizens has come to the rescue of elderly Muslim couple who were "separated by talaq" by their own children for grabbing their properties at Bellur town in Nagamangala taluk.

Abdul Majeed, 77 and Fathima Bi, 65, were reportedly forcibly separated by their children. The couple have five sons and a daughter. It is said that Fathima Bi owns 1.28 acres of land at Bellur town and 36 guntas of farmland. Abdul has a house in his name.

Following the intervention of the helpline officials, one of the couple's sons, Nayaz Pasha, took his parents to his house on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters, Nayaz Pasha said, "I was under treatment for heart attack at a hospital in Mysuru. My younger brothers had tried to grab the properties by forcing my parents into a talaq and later deserted them. I learnt about the incident after returning to the town. They are with me now," he said.
