The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday directed that the order of a Norway court which had ruled that the custody of two children, Abhigyan and Aishwarya, sent back from that country after a custody row, be given to their uncle, be upheld.
The direction came hours after the police handed over the two children to their mother Sagarika Chakrabarty in the morning.
Sagarika had earlier appealed to the court for the custody of the two children, who were staying with their uncle Arunabhas Bhattacharya at Kulti in Burdwan district following an order from the Norway court.
On Tuesday, when the High Court was told about the the fact that the police had handed over the two childen to their mother, Justice Dipankar Dutta directed the police to return the child to their uncle. He also asked the state to file a compliance report on Wednesday and fixed the hearing of the case for next Monday.
Avigyan and Aishwarya were separated from their parents Sagarika and Anurup Bhattacharjee according to the order of the Norwegian Child Welfare Services in May last year. In April last year, they were brought to India and handed over to Arunabash.
