An Indian couple has been arrested here for scolding their seven-year-old son for wetting his pants.

The Indian mission in Oslo has reportedly offered to provide consular assistance to the family.

Reports said in February, IT professional Chandrasekhar and his wife Anupama's son Sai Sriram told his teacher that his father had scolded him for bed-wetting and threatened to send him back to India.

Consequently, the school filed a complaint against the couple and the kids were sent to foster care by Norwegian authorities.

After six weeks of investigation, the child services gave the couple a clean chit and the children were reunited with the parents.

In November, Chandrashekhar was given a notice to appear at a local Norwegian court. After the hearing on Monday, the couple was arrested and sent to remand for five days, reports said.
