Five-year-old Aryan, son of an NRI couple living in Norway, who was taken into custody by the Norwegian Child Welfare Department on December 13 from his kindergarten school, is still at a foster home.

Almost two weeks after the child was taken away by the child welfare authorities acting on a complaint that Aryan's father Anil Kumar and his wife had beaten up their son, the mother has also communicated the matter to the Indian embassy in Oslo.

However, due to Christmas vacation, she is yet to hear from the authorities.

Anil Kumar told CNN-News18 that he had met his son last Monday and hasn't had any communication ever since. "We have no idea where my son is," he said," My son told us that he misses us and he wants us to take him back."

Kumar is a Norwegian citizen and his wife holds an Indian passport. They have appealed to the Indian government for help alleging that their son was taken away without any evidence and is suffering at a children's home under the custody of child welfare department.

Earlier, the Indian embassy in Norway had confirmed to CNN-News18 that Indian Ambassador Debraj Pradhan has already spoken to the child’s father.

Norway’s child welfare department, however, was tight-lipped on the exact facts of the case. When CNN-News18 emailed them to ascertain the status of the case and the charges against the parents they had responded saying, “The Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion is responsible for the general child welfare policy. However, the government does not have the authority to comment on or intervene in individual cases”.
