Both parties are understood to have approached the Kulti police in Burdwan district slamming allegations at each other. The mother Sagarika has alleged that she was not allowed to meet her biological children who is presently living with the uncle Arunabhas Bhattacharya, who is their guardian and legal custodian. The uncle, on the other hand, claimed that the mother was trying to take away the children forcibly.
Inspector-in-Charge of Kulti police station Sanjib Dey has been quoted as saying, "Sagarika lodged a verbal complaint that Arunabhas’ family was not allowing her to meet the children." Arunabhas, however, commented, "Under the agreement with the Norwegian government, I’m their legal guardian until they turn 18." He added that Sagarika's family was threatening them and that he had already filed a complaint in this regard.
The tiff sparked off when Sagarika's father, Monotosh Chakraborty, along with his friends landed at the uncle's residence to discuss the issue of custody of the children, Monotosh stated, "They misbehaved with us. On Thursday, my daughter rushed to Arunabhas’s house alone to meet her children but she was not allowed to enter."
Arunabhas, however, had a different version to say when he claimed, "Monotosh Chakraborty, accompanied by a few thugs, came to our house and tried to take the kids away by force. However, after we created a ruckus, the goons gave up and left."
Opening up a can of worms on the personal differences between Sagarika and Anurup Bhattacharya, the parents of the children, the mother alleges that she was beaten up by Anurup and was thrown out of the house in Norway.
