Indira Gandhi To Sue IGP For RM100 Mil Over Failure To Return Daughter To Her

M Indira Gandhi is planning to sue the inspector-general of police for RM100 million, over the police's failure to reunite her with her youngest daughter, who was forcefully taken from her more than 10 years ago. 

"I will file the lawsuit the lawsuit tomorrow or the day after, in the Kuala Lumpur High Court. 

"What else can I do? This is the only legal way I can pursue to get my daughter back and to make those who were ordered by the court to return her to me, accountable," the kindergarten teacher was quoted telling Malay Mail. 

The lawsuit will be filed by Raj & Sach law firm, added the report. 

Meanwhile, Indira, accompanied by members of the Indira Gandhi Action Team (Ingat), will carry on with her 12-day, 300km plus "justice walk", from Sungai Petani, Kedah to the Prime Minister's Office in Putrajaya, on November 21.

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.
