Thane: Sr citizen hits neighbour over noisy renovation

THANE: An elderly woman and her son, who reside in a posh residential complex in the Pokhran area of Thane, have been booked for allegedly assaulting their neighbour for objecting to renovations in their flat in the afternoon, the police informed on Sunday.
This sort of incident is becoming common in several housing societies of late, as residents are working from home and are disturbed by civic and construction works in the neighbourhood. Office bearers from several societies said they have been handling such complaints frequently of late.
In this case, last week, the complainant had approached her upstairs neighbours in the Courtyard building, objecting to the renovation work being done in the afternoon. “The society has a policy of not allowing renovation work from 2pm to 4pm and post 7pm. However, some work was being done during the prohibited hours,” said a police officer.
An argument ensued. “The verbal spat turned ugly as the elderly woman, her son and a relative got aggressive with me, also assaulting me in the elevator when I tried to approach the society management,” said the victim in her complaint registered with the Chitalsar Manpada police.
The woman suffered minor injuries for which she was treated at CSM hospital, Kalwa. She later approached the police and registered a complaint. The police said they are investigating the case.
