Man kisses mom’s foot in court after admitting cursing her
Thirty-eight-year-old Budhuram Ishwar of Lot 163 Smythfield, New Amsterdam, yesterday admitted using a series of expletives to his mother at their home, while he was under the influence of alcohol.
Ishwar openly displayed his contrition by bending and kissing his mother’s foot at the New Amsterdam Court.
After the defendant pleaded guilty to the charge of abusive language, Magistrate Adela Nagamootoo told him to apologize to his mother Tilleawattie Sukhoo for his behaviour, but the woman on hearing the court’s order removed one of her slippers and told her son,
“You know what you have to do.” He then got on his knees in open court and kissed the woman’s foot.
He was then ordered to sign a bond to keep the peace for one year, failing which he will be imprisoned for a seven-day period.
