SEPANG: Police have information on the whereabouts of the ex-husband of kindergarten teacher M. Indira Gandhi who took away their daughter 10 years ago.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador (pic) said Friday (Jan 31) that he knows where the man is, which is why he urged him to come forward and talk.

"Enough hiding, come forward, let us settle this so that you can stay in the country and your children can have a proper education.

"I understand the feelings of the mother who has been separated from her child for so long. That is why I have been making progress on this case quietly," he told reporters after attending the Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd Aviation Security(AvSec) Squad 26/2019 basic training completion assembly at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Friday.

He said he could not say if they would see results in a month or two.

"I urge everyone to be patient, but she has a right to file a suit against me or the government, I will not comment on that," he said.

It was reported that the lawyers of Indira were asking if Abdul Hamid knows the location of her daughter Prasana Diksa and ex-husband K. Pathmanathan (who is now known as Muhammad Riduan Abdullah) – who have been missing for 11 years.

Legal firm Raj and Sach wanted Abdul Hamid to explain his statement that a "win-win" situation was needed to protect Prasana's welfare.

"There is absolutely no necessity for a 'win-win scenario' when there is an order from the Federal Court for the IGP and the police to arrest Pathmanathan and return Prasana Diksa to Indira Gandhi.

"The IGP has failed to give effect to the order of the Federal Court," the lawyers said in a statement Thursday (Jan 30).

Police have yet to locate Muhammad Riduan despite an arrest warrant issued by the High Court in 2014.

He had taken Prasana Diksa away from Indira when she was just 11 months old in 2009.
