KUALA LUMPUR: Police have once again asserted that they have never stopped trying to trace Muhammad Ridhuan Abdullah,48, and his nine-year-old daughter Prasana Diksa.
Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd said various efforts had been made to trace Ridhuan and Prasana.
"The public should stop speculating on this case to avoid tension and jeopardising public order," he said in a statement today.
Ridhuan had failed to return his youngest daughter to his ex-wife M. Indira Gandhi after an order by the Ipoh High Court in May 2014.
It was reported that police have issued an appeal to the public to channel pertinent information to them so that he may be found.
In a landmark ruling last week, the Federal Court declared null and void the unilateral conversion to Islam of Ridhuan and Indira’s three children, including Prasana.
The Federal Court had unanimously decided to allow Indira’s appeal to nullify the unilateral conversion of the three children – Prasana, Tevin Darsini, 21, and Karan Dinish, 20.
