On January 10, Calcutta High Court, in an interim order, allowed mother Sagarika Bhattacharya to take custody of her two children, Abhigyan and Aishwarya from their uncle.

The two children, who returned from Norway on April 24 last year and were in the fostercare of their uncle at Kulti in Burdwan district.
