Gujarati Couple, Bhavesh and Dhara Shah have been trying to reunite with their baby girl Ariha, who is currently in foster care in Germany. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday responded to the matter, saying they are in touch with German authorities.
“The case of the Indian baby currently in foster care in Germany is a sensitive matter and is sub judice. The government has been intervening and engaging with the German authorities on the matter for over a year, since September 2021,” said MEA Spokesperson Arindam Baghchi.
The couple has been battling for months to get their daughter back, who was taken from them under Child Protection Rights. The couple lives in Berlin, and eight months after the birth of their child, their parents moved to Germany to spend the vacation with them.
According to media reports, baby Ariha was accidentally hurt by her grandmother in September last year. She was immdiately rushed to the hospital, where the German authorities accused the couple of sexual assault against the child and took her away from their care, the couple said.
