The NRI Sagari police, which registered the case on Thursday, identified the accused as Dr Vivek Yadav (49) and his mother Mahadevi Jaipalsingh Yadav (70), both from Bhopal. According to the complainant, who is from Navi Mumbai, she was subjected to ‘’cruel treatment’’ by the accused duo in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh between 2009 and August 2022.
