Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun today said the police are still unable to trace Hindu mother M Indira Gandhi’s missing daughter Prasana Diksa and her fugitive ex-husband, Muhammad Riduan Abdullah.
However, Fuzi told reporters that they were doing their best to locate them.
“In fact, on several occasions, my director of CID has been giving press conferences, appealing to the public with any information on the whereabouts of Indira Gandhi’s ex-husband and her child, but until now nobody has come forward,” he said, referring to the Criminal Investigation Department.
“This is an ongoing thing because this is a court order given to us,” Fuzi said.
Indira’s former husband who now goes by the name Muhammad Riduan converted all three of their children on April 2, 2009, without her consent and applied to the Shariah Court for their custody.
He ran away with Prasana when she was only 11 months old after the High Court granted Indira full custody of all three children nine years ago.
In an emotional open letter published last November, Indira pleaded for updates on her daughter from Fuzi and the new Pakatan Harapan government.
“Where are they? Is Prasana alive? Is she well? As her mother, I do not know these things which I rightfully should. Why? Because the authorities have yet to tell me anything about her.
“My new Malaysia is the day my daughter is returned to me. So to the IGP and the Harapan government, how long more?” her letter read.
