Settle problem privately, IGP tells Deepa
KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar has advised S. Deepa and her Muslim convert husband Izwan Viran Abdullah to settle their problem privately.
Khalid said the police were not worried about the safety of the six-year-old boy who was taken away from the mother yesterday because he was with the father.
Yesterday, FMT reported that the mother, who won custody of her two children four days ago, wanted the police to arrest her ex-husband for violating a court order by abducting their son.
“There are two court orders – civil and syariah. In this case it is best if the two can settle their problem,” said Khalid.
However, he said police were monitoring the situation and had not received any warrant.
Deepa told FMT in Seremban yesterday that she was worried that Izwan might take her son overseas.
“Why are the police still unable to nab my ex-husband?” she asked.
“Police must take action soon because he has violated the court order by abducting my son,” said Deepa.
Deepa alleged that the Green Mitshubishi Pajero used in the abduction yesterday belonged to Yayasan Kasih Sayang where Izwan was working.
When contacted, the female staff of Yayasan Kasih Sayang said she would relay the message on the Pajero to her superior who was in Kuala Lumpur.
However, no one from Yayasan Kasih Sayang called FMT to verify the matter.
Jelebu police chief Deputy Supt Setapa Yusoff could not be reached for comments.
The IGP is duty-bound to act against the ex husband as he not only kidnapped the boy but also attacked the mother so two charges should be brought against the man.
The High Court is secular whereas the Syariah court is religious, so who is the police to follow - is the police under syariah.
If the IGP acts like this then better he resign for he is not doing his duty.
God help this country.
