KOTA KINABALU: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar has suggested that the children involved in recent custody battles between Muslim and non-Muslim parents be placed under the care of the Welfare Department until the courts sort out the issues.

“The cases involve two legal systems, the Syariah and the civil. We do not want to be tersepit ditengah (caught in the middle),” he told reporters after meeting senior Sabah police officers and district police officers in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (Esszone).
