The Norway children custody case has been resolved finally with the Norway's Child Welfare Service (CWS) willing to hand over the NRI kids Abhigyan and Aishwarya Bhattacharya to their paternal uncle Arunabhash Bhattacharya.
"The CWS now recommends that the uncle takes over care of the two Indian children in the child welfare case and a Stavanger District Court will make the final decision on April 17," said CWS Communication Adviser Thomas Bore Olsen in an e-mailed statement to IBNS.
"The agreement can be implemented as soon as practicable. The uncle will then take over the care of the children and take them back to India," he added.
The CWS had earlier decided to drop the case following the change of position by the parents and uncle of the kids. It opined that the kids could turn into a bone of contention even if the family comes to an agreement.
Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya, NRI couple from Kolkata, have been trying to get back their children, who were taken away by CWS for alleged negligent upbringing. However, they complicated the case by accusing each other of marital violence.
Arunabhash Bhattacharya, the uncle of the children, too had earlier refused to accept the kids on hearing the marital discord of their parents.
