External Affairs Minister SM Krishna on Sunday instructed Indian ambassador to Norway RK Tyagi to speak to Norwegian foreign ministry to ensure the release of two children, who were separated from an NRI couple by the Norwegian Childcare Services.
Krishna is also likely to speak to his Norwegian counterpart Jonas Gahr Store on Monday demanding the release of the two children.
Krishna spoke to Tyagi during the day and asked him to contact Norwegian foreign ministry to ensure the release of the children.
NRI couple Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya's children Abhigyan (3) and Aishwarya (1) were taken under protective care by Norwegian Child Welfare Services, which claimed emotional disconnect with the parents, and placed them in foster parental care.
On January 12, 2011, an official of the Indian Embassy in Oslo visited the foster home where the young children are staying and ascertained that they were in good health, the MEA said in a release. HTC
