SEPANG – The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) know about the location of hiding of Indira Gandhi’s ex-husband, K. Padmanathan or his new Islamic name, Muhammad Riduan Abdullah who fled with their daughter.
The suspect had allegedly fled from his wife after converting his religion 11 years ago, taking their daughter with him.
The Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador advised the individual to stop hiding and come forward to resolve their child custody issue for the benefit of both parties.
“What is more important now, I, as the Inspector-General of Police is concerned about the case. I’m taking the approach to allow both parties to meet and may their problems be resolved for the future and welfare of their daughter.
“In this case, both parents have legal rights but we should not be fighting over it and neglect the child’s welfare.
“We don’t know where he (Muhammad Riduan) is? The community also doesn’t know where he is… but I know where he is. That is why negotiation efforts are being done. Please come forward, we will resolve it. Don’t need to hide anymore,” he told said.
Abdul Hamid added, the negotiation can help both parties to guarantee the education rights of their daughter.
“That is why I work silently on this issue. Insyallah… I cannot say within a month or two… but I am working towards that. Please be patient.
“Her (Indira) rights to file a civil suit on me? On the government? That is up to her. I don’t want to comment about that because it is more important for the PDRM and I to prepare and carry out duties. We will focus on that,” he added. -MalaysiaGazette
