Norway authorities take away Indian kids from parents

Kolkata, Dec 24: The Norway government-run Child Protective Services took away two Indian children on May 11, 2011 as the authority claimed that the children were not brought up properly. The Bengali couple has complained the Indian government and West Bengal government to take action against the authority.

The issue was taken up to court and it has been decided that the children will be kept in separate foster homes till they are 18 and the couple can meet them twice a year for one hour.

However, the family is still not clear on what basis the Norway authorities took away their children. [Read: SM Krishna hopes to soothe Norway parents' dilemma]

"We are very upset confronted with this overwhelming situation. I am a bereaved mother. I have lost my four-month-old baby and two-year-old son and we have lot of emotional attachment with the kids. Very difficult for us to survive," says Sagarika Bhattacharya, the children's mother.

"They told me why are you sleeping with the children in the same bed. This is also a purely cultural issue. We never leave the children in another room and say goodnight to them," says Anurup Bhattacharya, the children's father.

"I beg with folded hands that they get my grandchildren back to our country," says Montosh Chakraborty, the children's grandfather.
