Indira Gandhi not giving up on seeing daughter

KUALA LUMPUR: M. Indira Gandhi is hoping to be reunited with her long-lost daughter Prasana Diksa before Deepavali in November.

After a meeting with police at Bukit Aman yesterday, Indira said she only wanted to meet her daughter, whom she last held in 2009 when the child was 11 months old.

She said she had no issues if Prasana wanted to embrace Islam.

“I just want to meet her. I want to hold her. That’s my main reason for finding Prasana, ” the mother-of-three told reporters after the meeting.

Indira, 45, was accompanied by lawyer and activist Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan and Indira Gandhi Action Team (Ingat) chairman Arun Dorasamy.

They were supposed to meet Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador but were told that he had to attend another meeting in Putrajaya.

Arun said there was still a deficit of trust between them and the police, adding that they remained unconvinced by the meeting.

Indira’s former husband Muhammad Riduan Abdullah, known as K. Pathmanathan before he converted to Islam, had taken Prasana Diksa away from her when she was just 11 months old.

Their two elder children, Tevi Darsiny, now 22, and Karan Dinish, now 21, have stayed with Indira.

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

Indira last saw Prasana Diksa briefly in court when she was about 18 months old.
