US child custody row: Grandparents seek President's help

September 16, 2012 21:10 IST

The grandparents of 11-month-old Indrasish Saha, who is in the custody of a child welfare organisation in New Jersey for over a month, on Sunday met President Pranab Mukherjee here and sought his intervention for the return of the child to the parents.

Family sources said that the President heard them at the Raj Bhawan and assured them that he would talk to the external affairs ministry in this regard.

The grandparents requested the President to impress upon the government of India to secure release of the child from the New Jersey organisation.

The child has been taken into custody by the child welfare organisation of New Jersey on the ground that he was not taken care of by his parents -- Indrajit Saha and Pamela Saha.
