That Issue About The Kids In Norway

Pretty sure that most would be familiar with the issue. For those who are not:


The two kids were taken away from their parents Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya, an NRI couple living there, by Barnevarne Norwegian CWS last May on the ground of "emotional disconnect" and put in a foster home.


After this, a lot of noise was made in India.

  • Relatives / general public were protesting (in India).
  • Grandparents of the kids were meeting with the President of India.
  • Ministry of External Affairs got involved.
  • Shit loads of statements were issued.
  • Special Envoys were set up to visit Norway and resolve the matter.
  • An uncle was supposed to get custody of the children.

As per the latest updates, Anurup and Anurup's father are now insisting that Sagarika is fucked in the head suffering from acute schizophrenia. According to Anurup's father Sagarika has had the problem since 2007 (shortly after their marriage) and Anrurup has been tolerating her!


"Yes, Anurup is mulling legal separation from his wife as she suffers from acute schizophrenia. Last night (Monday) Sagarika attacked my son and badly injured him. Since then, he has fled from her and is living elsewhere. She has been attacking him for long," Anurup's father Ajay Bhattacharya told IANS.

"Anurup came to know about her mental disorder shortly after their marriage in 2007 and has been tolerating her bad behaviour ever since. But now he cannot take it anymore. He had kept quiet till now to get back the custody of his children," he added.


Apparently, they have no problem with the actions of the Norwegian CWS.

I don't really have a view on who should get the custody of the kids, but this couple should be taken into custody. Get a psych evaluation done – not just for the female but for the entire family – Anurup, Sagarika, Grandparents, the relatives who were screaming and shouting in front of the media. Each and everyone. They should all be remanded to custody till the matter is sorted.

The one time the Indian government actually tried to do something helpful for an NRI stuck in a messy situation and it turns out the entire family had been concealing information relevant to the case. Well done!

I am guessing there will be more statements issued now. Anurup or his father could very well retract his latest statement and say he was misquoted (rolls eyes). Sagarika's family will most likely come up with statements of their own. The NCWS will wonder what the fuck is going on and the kids will bang their heads against the wall and wonder what they have done to be born into a cuckoo family.

More drama to come, that is for sure.

Shaabash. If EARLIER there wasn't any logical / legal ground for removing the kids from their parents, the NCWS NOW has enough reasons to make sure these kids stay as far away as possible - from this crazy lying family.

traumatized family.. they were in agony for more than 10 months, reached a breaking point due to pressures of the conditions placed on the family by CWS.

Oh yes. That is why the family issued statements that the wife was a nut case and had been one since 2007.

Sure. Blame the CWS.
