She alleged that she had put her case before the police several times but no action had been taken so far.

"Gony is harassing me at the behest of his wife and elder brother and his wife, my husband is also assisting them in their illegal designs," she said.

Kaur, who is living in her house in Mohali, said that even her son at many occasions had threatened her with dire consequences.

She alleged that Gony, his brother Manmohan Singh, his wife Amandeep Kaur and their father Sarwan Singh had also tried to kill her.

"I am a senior citizen and suffering from injustice at the hands of my own relatives," she said in her written complaint to police.

"I have been continuously pressurised to hand over the property shares to Gony," she alleged.

Seeking justice, she urged police to register a case against her relatives whose names have been mentioned in the complaint. Gony is youngest of her three sons. One of his brothers is settled abroad.

Meanwhile, Gony trashed the accusations levelled by his mother as "baseless." "I got separated from my family six years back. After that I had no connections with them (family members)," Gony said over phone from Himachal Pardesh.

"I had nothing to do with my mother," Gony, who got married allegedly against the wishes of her mother few years back, said.

Meanwhile, police said that it was looking into the complaint and verifying the facts.

Sources close to the family said that there has been long standing dispute among the family members over the property and some land.

This is not the first time that Gony's mother has accused her cricketer son of threatening to kill her, In 2008, Mohinder Kaur had told reporters that Gony’s in-laws were instigating him in threatening to kill her.

"I am pained to tell my plight through media and that too about my own son. Shortly before he left for Asia Cup in Pakistan, Manpreet along with a few of his relatives from his in-laws side came to my house and threatened to kill me," Kaur had told reporters at that time.

"After the IPL was over and before the Asia Cup, he came to the house and took away his belongings and tried to beat me up," she had further alleged.
