NEWDELHI: Even as the uncle of the two Indian children, who were separated from their parents, left for Norway, India started to mount pressure on Norway for an expeditious resolution of the case. In separate meetings, Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan and MEA Secretary (West) M Ganapathi met with their respective Norwegian counterparts, who are here to attend an environment summit, and spoke to them for a expeditious resolution of the problem, said MEA spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin here on Wednesday. The two children, Abhigyan, 3, and Aishwarya, 1, had been separated from their parents, Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya, by the Norwegian Child Welfare Services since May and put into foster care, claiming that there was “emotional disconnect” between the parents and children. “She (Natarajan) underlined that the issue had attracted wide attention in the Indian media and had evoked tremendous emotional resonance with the people of India. She emphasised that it was of utmost importance that the children should not be deprived of their national, cultural and linguistic traditions,” said a press release issued by Ministry of Environment and Forests.
