This is an action brought by Indira Gandhi for an order against the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to execute a committal order obtained by her against her husband, Patmanathan a/l Krishnan (Muhammad Riduan Bin Abdullah) who had refused to return their daughter, Prasana Diksa (then a year old) to her. The IGP states that he is in a legal conundrum in light of 2 conflicting orders issued by the Civil Court giving the wife custody of Prasana on the one hand and the Syariah Court giving custody to the husband on the other.
