72 year old Indian woman has first baby to end legal battle over inheritance

A 72-year-old woman delivered a baby after 46 years of her marriage at a Hisar-based fertility centre in April, making her the oldest woman to bear a first child.

While this news seems to be an occasion to rejoice, it has now emerged Mohinder Singh Gill decided to have a child in order to secure his father’s inheritance worth Rs 4.8 crores.

According to the Daily Mail, Gill, who is a farmer in Amritsar, admitted they turned to IVF to end a legal battle over his father's inheritance. He said, “My father was trying to deprive me of a share in his property on the plea because I didn't have a child.”
