M Indira Gandhi has filed a civil suit against Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador over the latter’s purported refusal to locate her ex-husband Muhammad Riduan Abdullah.
Her counsel, Rajesh Nagarajan informed Malaysiakini that the suit had been filed via e-filing to the Kuala Lumpur High Court this morning.
Indira Gandhi has been fighting to regain custody of her daughter Prasana Diksa, who had been taken by Riduan.
“It was done via e-filing,” Rajesh said when asked on whether the writ of summons has been filed against the top cop this morning.
The lawyer confirmed that the suit was filed over the IGP’s alleged failure to enforce the court order to locate Riduan.
“Yes, (the suit is) seeking damages for the failure of the IGP to purposefully refuse to locate the ex-husband,” Rajesh said.
Indira Gandhi had said she would be filing a civil suit against Abdul Hamid this week.
