Citing the continued harassment at the hands of money lenders, ten members of a family have jointly submitted a memorandum to the Panchmahal district collector seeking euthanasia.
The incident is of Kalol.
The family has alleged that Jitendra Jaswani and Iqbalsha Diwan had lent Rs 30 lakh to his eldest son, Pankaj, at the time of demonetisation in 2016.
The memorandum has been submitted by Girdhar Kudia on behalf of his wife, four sons and their wives.
The man adds that Pankaj did not return the money and has been absconding since November 2017.
Since then, they add, the money lenders are now demanding the money to the tune of Rs 1 crore.
According to the memorandum, Girdhar lived with four of his sons in Kalol while Pankaj lived with his wife and two children
After Pankaj went missing, Girdhar filed a complaint at Kalol police station but he remains untraceable.
Seeking permission for euthanasia for the family, Girdhar stated that after their deaths, the family would want the government to look after the children.
Apart from Pankaj’s children, there are five other children in the family.>
