Kuala Lumpur: Indira Gandhi is filing contempt proceedings against Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Abdul Hamid Bador after the latter failed to return her daughter who was kidnapped by her ex-husband.
Indira Gandhi Action Team (INGAT) chairman Arun Dorasamy said that she has no other option and is compelled to do this due to lack of cooperation from the police.
In a press conference, Dorasamy stated that there had been no communication with the IGP’s office since 3 September.
Earlier, in September, Indira sued the IGP, the police and the government at the Kuala Lumpur High Court for RM 100 million over the authorities’ inaction in the matter.
When asked about the new contempt, he said that the last date to reunite the mother and daughter had passed. In the letter, they said the police must get her ex-husband Muhammad Ridhuan Abdullah to return Prasana “on or before Nov 15”
He added that they have a court order, however, the person responsible to enforce them is not cooperating.
Muhammad Ridhuan took their daughter, Prasana, along with him in 2009 when she was 11 months old after converting to Islam.
