The Federal Court has instructed the inspector-general of police (Khalid Abu Bakar) to arrest Muslim convert Mohd Ridhuan Abdullah over the highly-watched interfaith custody case.

The five-man bench chaired by Court of Appeal president Md Raus Sharif allowed kindergarten teacher M Indira Gandhi's appeal to reinstate the mandamus order issued by the High Court in Ipoh compelling inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar to execute the warrant of committal against her former husband, Ridhuan.

The apex court found the committal order against Ridhuan to be justified as he had failed to bring his child, Prasana Diksa, to the jurisdiction of the court.
