A desperate escape by a defiant father to the UAE with his own toddler daughter in violation of court orders has triggered an Interpol search for the baby on a CBI request.

The global agency has issued a Yellow Notice for the 2.5-year-old baby, Raina, on the CBI request, while the process for a Red Corner Notice against Aman Lohia, the father, has been initiated by the agency, officials said.

The External Affairs Ministry also issued a note verbale on September 9 to authorities in the UAE to not let Aman leave the country.

Yellow Notices are issued by the Interpol on the request of member countries to locate missing persons, while Red Corner Notices are a global request to arrest an absconder.
