PETALING JAYA: The Indira Gandhi Action Team (Ingat) is offering a RM50,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of M Indira Gandhi’s daughter, Prasana Diksa.

Prasana was taken away by Indira’s former husband, Muhammad Riduan Abdullah, before he converted to Islam in 2009. Prasana was just 11 months old at the time, and the two are believed to be overseas.

The courts have ordered Riduan to return Prasana to Indira, and the Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said last month police were negotiating through an intermediary to bring Riduan and Prasana back into the country.

“This RM50,000 reward is for anybody with any information regarding Prasana’s whereabouts.

“If they have sighted her, know the neighbourhood, if they have seen her with any other person, when, where … we will reward them accordingly,” Ingat chairman Arun Dorasamy told FMT.

Dorasamy said the reward would only be awarded for “verifiable true information” which would lead to Prasana’s whereabouts.

He said the reward is funded by public donations.

“There are a lot of good Samaritans who want to help reunite her (Indira) with her daughter,” he said.

Earlier today, Dorasamy said that Indira would embark on a 12-day, 350km walk to Putrajaya to deliver a letter to the prime minister accompanied by Ingat members.

Dorasamy said they would also deliver a memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the way to Putrajaya.

The details of the walk will be announced at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.
