IGP: We are working towards 'happy ending' for Indira Gandhi's case

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman is diligently working towards a "happy ending" in reuniting M. Indira Gandhi with her daughter, says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The Inspector-General of Police said he has taken a personal interest in the case and the police's main goal is to track down her daughter Prasana Diksa.

"We have and are still working hard towards tracing the whereabouts of Indira Gandhi's daughter.

"I have given an assurance that I will not let the mother and daughter be apart," he told a press conference after launching the Bukit Aman Narcotic Crimes Investigation Department (NCID) corporate video and theme song on Tuesday (Jan 28).

Handling a case that has gone on for seven years is quite hard but police are pooling their resources in tracing the daughter, he added.

"I want to see a happy ending occur as being apart is not good for anyone.

"I have my own ways of achieving such a goal but I don't publicise it," he said.

Asked on Indira Gandhi's legal team's pending action against him, the IGP said he would see what form of action that her side is intending on taking.

"We will evaluate their action first before responding further," Abdul Hamid said.

It was reported that Indira Gandhi's legal team had sent a reminder to police to continue efforts to locate and return her daughter Prasana Diksa.

Indira Gandhi Action Team (Ingat) chairman Arun Dorasamy claimed that other than a briefing from the special task force formed to locate the now 11-year-old, there have been no other updates on the girl's whereabouts.

"All we know is (Bukit Aman CID director) Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed is heading the task force. We do not know the activities nor the people within that task force.

"We haven't met them since our last meeting on April 19 last year," he said.

Arun also said the Ingat plans to file a RM100mil civil suit against the IGP, the special task force, police and the Malaysian Government next month for failing to reunite Prasana with her mother.

The team will also be filing a Contempt of Court order as they claim the IGP has failed to comply with the court order.
