Indira Gandhi plans 350km ‘justice walk’ to hand letter to King, PM


KUALA LUMPUR: M. Indira Gandhi says she will be embarking on a 350km Justice Walk from Sungai Petani to Putrajaya if her missing daughter Prasana Diksa is not returned to her by Nov 15.

The planned walk will take 12 days, with Indira planning to present a memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and a letter to the Prime Minister.

The walk will begin on Nov 21 from Sungai Petani and culminate with the delivery of a letter to the Prime Minister on Dec 2.

"I have been pleading with everyone to return my daughter. I have exhausted knocking on all the doors of the authorities and ministers.

"I just want my daughter returned to me. It has been 11 years since I last saw my daughter," she said sobbing, during a press conference on Friday (Oct 9).

Indira admitted that she was not physically fit, but said that the thought of being with her daughter would motivate her to finish the walk.

"She is the only strength I need to push myself. Prasana is my biggest motivator now," she said, adding that she hoped the rakyat, especially other mothers, would support her in her endeavour.

She said she was trying to do things legally, but did not know how much longer she had to wait for Prasana to be with her.

Meanwhile, Indira Gandhi Action Team (Ingat) chairman Arun Dorasamy said they would be offering a reward of RM50,000 to anyone who has credible information on the whereabouts of Prasana.

He said the names of those giving information would be kept secret.

"Riduan is not Jho Low. He has no money. Who is protecting him?" he asked.

Indira and her lawyers met with the police at Bukit Aman in September, although Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Hamid Bador was not present during the meeting.

Her former husband Muhammad Riduan, formerly K. Padmanathan before his conversion to Islam, took Prasana Diksa away from Indira when she was just 11 months old.

Their other two children, Tevi Darshiny, then 13, and Karan Dinesh, then 12, remained with their mother.

Police have yet to locate the ex-husband despite an arrest warrant issued by the High Court in 2014.

The Federal Court had in January 2018 nullified the unilateral conversion of Indira’s three children to Islam by her ex- husband.

Riduan is believed to be in a neighbouring country to avoid detection by the authorities, the Home Ministry said in August.
