IPOH: Police have placed convert Muhammad Riduan Abdullah (pic) the wanted list and are attempting to ascertain his whereabouts.
“Anyone with information or the suspect himself can meet or contact the investigating officers ASP Kamariah Jamaludin at 05-2451628 or 016-5249091 or SM Helen Parera 013-5189925 or any police station in the district,” said Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Sum Chang Keong in a statement on Saturday.
On Friday, the Federal Court ordered the Inspector-General of Police to execute a warrant of arrest against convert Muhammad Riduan for disobeying an order to return his daughter to his former wife, M. Indira Gandhi.
The five-man panel chaired by Court of Appeal president Justice Md Raus Sharif allowed the kindergarten teacher’s appeal in a unanimous decision.
Justice Md Raus also restored the mandamus order by the Ipoh High Court compelling the IGP to arrest Muhammad Riduan until he handed over eight-year-old Prasana to Indira.
In an immediate reaction, IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said he would abide by the Federal Court order to arrest Muhammad Riduan, an odd job worker, for contempt of court.
Justice Md Raus remarked that Muhammad Riduan had willingly submitted himself to the jurisdiction of the civil court and due process was accorded to him but when the case did not turn out in his favour, he decided to ignore the court’s rulings.
