One more case of Elder Abuse, there is increase in Atrocity against Senior Citizens in India -the country of so called ‘Joint Family’ & Culture and Tradition. See this way we treat our Elders. Its Abuse of Human Right. A Human Right Violation against Human Being, but our Government is mute spectator, NO LAW TO STOP ELDER ABUSE.

My Heart Bleeds whenever I come to know about Elder Abuse, REQUEST ALL SOCIAL ACTIVIST , SENIOR CITIZENS , ORGANISATION WORKING FOR & WITH SENIOR CITIZENS , HUMAN RIGHT ACTIVIST TO COME AHEAD and STOP ELDER ABUSE.
Government should take action on concern Police Station, SP Police , District Collector ;whenever there is any such incident occurred.
A bed-ridden 108-year-old woman was allegedly raped by her son’s friend at home in Jabalpur town when the rest of her family was out shopping on December 4. The crime was disclosed to HT on Friday by the president of the Jabalpur unit of the Mahila Congress after she took up the matter with Madhya Pradesh director general of police SK Rout in Bhopal.
The accused, Gopi Ahirwar, 45, a waiter in a hotel, lives in the same locality of Sita Pahad in Jabalpur cantonment and was a regular visitor to the victim’s home.
The victim, whose son is a daily wager, lives in the servant’s quarter of an army officer’s house. The victim’s granddaughter said, “As usual, we left the door open before leaving for the market that day as neighbours and relatives often visit our house to see my grandmother.”
The victim’s son said Ahirwar, who was drunk, bolted the door from inside. “As soon as he came out, our neighbours got suspicious and apprehended him.” The victim’s family rushed her a private hospital nearby but the doctors refused admission, claiming they wouldn’t be able to stop the excessive bleeding. She was then taken to a state government-run hospital, from where she was discharged on Monday.
Cantonment police station in-charge Mithlesh Sharma said the accused has been charged with rape and sent to jail.
108-yr-old rape victim starves self to death
The 108-year-old woman, who was raped by her son's friend at her home in Jabalpur, allegedly starved herself to death late on Friday night. Her son said since she had no medical complications before the assault, death must have come because "she stopped taking food and water since the incident took place".
Jabalpur district police chief Santosh Kumar Singh told HT that further action would be decided after getting the autopsy report. The police sent the body for autopsy on Saturday morning.
On December 4, Gopi Ahirwar (45), a waiter who lives in the same locality and was a regular visitor, entered the house while the family was out on shopping and raped her.The victim's daughter said the door to their home was always open as friends and neighbours often dropped in.
The victim's family initially did not want the autopsy done, but the police convinced them to get it done saying that it was necessary to find out whether she died because of the assault or prolonged illness.
A senior police official involved in the investigation said on condition of anonymity: "As she was discharged from the hospital on Monday, it is difficult to ascertain the actual cause of her death."
