The agreement said the uncle, Arunabha, has agreed to the parents wish and is aware of the responsibility and he will be the children’s primary caretaker.
The family said to Indian media that they are very happy about handing their children to their uncles.
Two kids of the NRI coupl were taken under protective care last May by Barnevarne, which claimed emotional disconnect with the parents, and placed them in foster parental care as per the local Norwegian court’s directive.
The family had accused the Norwegian authorities with cultural misunderstandings and prejudice as they were taken for being fed by hand and sleeping in the same bed as their parents in addition to unsufficient toys to play in the house.
After Indian government intervened the problem, the Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre had discussed the issue with India’s Minister for External Affairs, S.M. Krishna and assured a solution on last Monday.
