  • All talk but no action from top cop. He is perceived as using kid gloves in a case where legally, kidnapping has been committed by the Muslim convert father.

  • I believe the IGP wants an acceptable settlement to both husband and wife for the BENEFIT of the child. We knew the supreme court has made a final decision. Both husband and wife wanted custody of the child, so an amicable settlement is best for all 3 parties. People question PDRM intention bcos the authority did not exercise the court verdict effectively bcos it dragged too long in the eyes of the mother and the public. PDRM must understand that Rule of law must be executed with acceptable norms. This case is just far too long. The public can't accept this reality and it's bad image for PDRM. PDRM must exercise sensible and normally acceptable norms and must be seen to be doing it with faith. In this case, sorry, PDRM made a blunder of yourself. Suggest PDRM put up a RCI on this case to ensure Supreme court verdict is respected and seen to be respected by PDRM in the eyes of the public. I suspect some police officers has acted beyond their authority or ignored their responsibility. This is serious mistake and must not be repeated in future. A RCI will dig into the root cause and identidy key officer's overlook or deliberated mistakes and actions must be taken against all responsible to deter future occurrence.

  • Happy ending for the father? Shouldn't he be jailed for blatantly defying a court order?
    From when onwards has the PDRM usurped the role of the judiciary?

    Why has the PDRM gone all out to ensure an Unhappy ending for 12 innocent men arrested on false premises under SOSMA? No happy ending for them? Is it because they are not Muslim?

  • This IGP has failed to do his duty as ordered by the courts. He want to be a family counsellor now. He deserves now to be sued by Indira and he will lose the case for sure since he has now admitted he failed to deliver the child despite knowing the whereabouts of the child and her despicable father. The father should be jailed for contempt of court

  • What kind of happy ending do you wish for a mother who waited so many years to see her own daughter that is legally awarded to her care by the courts? Seriously, I fail to see the logic behind this.
