An elderly couple was violently beaten in their own house by a 21-year-old man in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. The case was registered against the accused, who is now out on bail. The family of the couple claims that the youth’s family is using their political contacts to get out of the case.

The incident happened on June 17 when the 64-year old man and his 63-year-old wife were at home. The accused Romil Mishra, who is a grandson of local Congress leader Saroj Mishra and son of local crime journalist Paresh Mishra, went to Mr and Mrs Khare’s house to meet them, as he already knew them.

According to the F.I.R, Romil Mishra, an undergraduate student, asked Mrs Sushma Khare to get a glass of water for him and as soon as she started walking towards the kitchen, the boy started hitting the woman with objects that were kept close to him.

The husband who was on the first floor came down running after hearing the commotion.

The accused allegedly then hit the husband as well. The couple ran outside their house to save themselves, then the neighbours called the police.

According to the medical reports, husband sustained minor injuries, whereas his wife suffered severe injuries.

The couple has three sons, all of whom are working outside Gwalior.


Complainant’s version

The elderly couple had given one portion of their house on rent to a girl and her friend. Initially, things were good with the couple and their tenants but later on the girls started coming late and also started calling their male friends at home. The couple expressed their disagreement over this and asked the girls to vacate their house.

On June 17, the accused, who was acquainted with one of the girls came to meet the couple and then attacked them. “He was angry about the fact that my mother had asked the girls to leave,” said one of their sons, while speaking to The Logical Indian. 

“The accused is from an influential family, and that is why the police are not taking the case seriously,” he added.

He also wrote a first-person account on Facebook and Twitter.



“My son is falsely implicated”

Journalist Prakash Mishra, the father of the accused has alleged that his son has been falsely named in the case. According to him, the old couple was trying to blackmail his son for last many months.

He further said that he would hold a press conference on Monday. He has refused to speak more about the case.

According to the Superintendent Police of Gwalior, the case has been registered under IPC section 307 (Attempt to murder) against the accused and investigation is being done in the case.
