Norway: The Indian couple who had lost custody of their children, reunited with them today after an agreement was reached between Barnevarne (Norwegian Child Welfare Services) and the parents.

The Norwegian Child Welfare Services agreed to give the children’s custody to their uncle but also asked the parents to stay back and visit India atleast twice a year.

The Child Welfare Service and the parents met to evaluate whether care of their children who have been placed in a Norwegian foster home can be awarded to the brother of the children’s father.
The three-year-old Abhigyan and the one-year-old Aishwarya, children of Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya, an NRI couple living in Stavanger, Norway, were taken under protective care by Barnevarne in May last year on grounds that they were not looked after properly by their parents.

Barnevarne had placed them in foster parental care as per the directive of the local Norwegian court, mandated under Norwegian laws.

An agreement was struck recently between India and Norway under which the parents named Anurup’s brother Arunabhash Bhattacharya as the primary caretaker of the two children.
