In a glimmer of hope for the distraught parents of Ariha Shah, the Indian baby held in foster care in Germany, there may be a breakthrough. After their persistent efforts to seek assistance in bringing their daughter home, the parents have received support from Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. He has written to the Ministry of External Affairs, drawing attention to their case and urging efforts to reunite Ariha with her family.

The letter was written by CM Shinde to S Jaishankar, stating that Baby Ariha Shah has been stuck in a foster home in Germany for the past 20 months. The parents, Dhara and Bhavesh Shah from Mumbai, Maharashtra, have been tirelessly fighting to repatriate their child to India. After meeting with Ariha's parents, the CM has urged the External Affairs Minister to arrange an in-person appointment with them, aiming to grasp a comprehensive understanding of their concerns and gather detailed information about the case.

The recent turn of events unfolded when Ariha's parents returned to India to seek assistance from Indian authorities, following a court hearing that took place over 10 days ago in Germany. Unfortunately, based on the court order, Ariha has been transferred to an orphanage, leaving her parents concerned about the environment she will be exposed to and the company she will have to share at the facility. Dhara expressed their worries, stating, "We don't really know what kind of people she will have to co-habit with in the orphanage. We are deeply concerned about her well-being."

The Maharashtra Chief Minister's letter to the Ministry of External Affairs reflects the commitment of the government to advocate for the Shah family's cause.
