Custody Battle: Indira Gandhi To Embark on A 12-Day, 350km Walk to Hand Letter to PM

  • 08 Oct 2020

M Indira Gandhi, who has been yearning to be reunited with her youngest daughter for more than 10 years, will embark on a 12-day, 350km walk from the north of the country to Putrajaya, to deliver a letter to the prime minister. 

According to Free Malaysia Today (FMT), the Ipoh-based kindergarten teacher will be accompanied by members of the Indira Gandhi Action Team (Ingat), during the walk - details of which will be announced at a press conference tomorrow. 

"12 days of walking, 350km. Justice walk from North to Putrajaya to deliver a letter demanding justice, God willng 

"Ingat and Indira are taking our plea for justice to the rakyat and to the prime minister," Ingat chairman Arun Dorasamy was quoted telling FMT. 

Arun added that the group will also deliver a memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the way to Putrajaya. 

Indira's former husband Muhammad Riduan Abdullah, whose name prior to conversion to Islam was K Padmanathan, unilaterally converted his three children with Indira to Islam, in 2009. 

He took Prasana, who was just 11-months-old then, while the elder children, Tevi Darshiny, and Karan Dinesh, who were then 13 and 12, respectively, were left with their mother.
Following a lengthy legal battle at both the civil and syariah courts, the Federal Court in 2016 unanimously declared the conversions null and void.

Indira has yet to see Prasana despite court orders to return the child to her mother. Riduan and Prasana are believed to be overseas.

Last month, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said that the police were negotiating through an intermediary to bring Riduan and Prasana back to the country.
