n May 2017, it mid-day reported that Geeta Kapoor was abandoned in a Mumbai hospital by her son Raja under the pretext of withdrawing cash from a nearby ATM. Geeta Kapoor then told mid-day that her son tortured and starved her. “He used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that’s why, he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled.”

Ashoke Pandit and fimmaker Ramesh Taurani came forward to her rescue and cleared her hospital bills. After she was discharged from hospital, she was staying in an old age home for the past one year.

May her soul rest in peace.
