India returned runaway Dubai princess to protect strategic interests | Business Standard News
Quote:
The unprecedented March 4 operation involved three Coast Guard ships, including the state-of-the-art offshore patrol vessels Samarth and Shoor, helicopters and a maritime surveillance aircraft.

India located the United States-flagged yacht, Nostromo, some 50 km off the coast of Goa.
New Delhi has so far declined to either confirm or deny the operation took place. “No such incident has been brought to our notice”, a Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson said in response to a query from Business Standard. The Coast Guard did not respond to an email seeking comment.

The operation, which the sources said was coordinated by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, led to the rendition of the 33-year-old princess, who has said she was seeking to escape torture inflicted by her father, United Arab Emirates Prime Minister and Dubai ruler Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum.

Dubai missing princess: Call for clarity on status of Sheikha Latifa
Human Rights Watch has urged the Dubai authorities to reveal the whereabouts of a missing princess.

Sheikha Latifa - the daughter of the Emirate's ruler - is said to have tried to flee in March in order to live a freer life abroad.

But witnesses say the luxury yacht she was travelling on was intercepted off India, and she was returned to Dubai. She has not been seen since.

Dubai's authorities say they cannot comment for legal reasons.

Ramadan will be starting soon. I hate to see all the FAKE PR pics that will be taking on Eid Al-Fitr, them pretending to be one happy family.

There´s an artical in todays Sunday Times about princess Latifa. Free if your register:
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/w...cess-5gj7qp6s3

The only "news" or comment to the article from UAE:
The UAE has not responded to a request for comment. Media channels linked to the royal household have said that Latifa is back with her family and that the case is a private matter.

It would be impossible to determine whether or not Sheikha Latifa III could avoid being taken advantage of and whether or not she could survive on her own.
There is an interesting quote in the "Death of a princess" documentary: "a person who wants to be, not to have". As per an interview to poor palestinians in Beirut commenting about the execution of the Arabian princess in 1977.
