Dawood Ibrahim's nephew gets married in Mumbai, underworld don to attend reception via Skype
Alishah Parkar, the son of Dawood Ibrahim's late sister Haseena Parkar, and Aisha Nagani got married at a mosque in Nagpada area of south Mumbai.
Mumbai: Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's nephew Alishah Parkar on Wednesday got married with the daughter of a city-based businessman in a traditional Muslim ceremony here.
Alishah, the son of Dawood's late sister Haseena Parkar, and Aisha Nagani got married at a mosque in Nagpada area of south Mumbai in the presence of their family members and close friends.
A handful of media persons were present outside the mosque and were kept at bay by family members. The Mumbai Police, however, kept an eye on the event attended by nearly 100 people.
The marriage rituals, which started at around 11 am, lasted for about one-and-a-half hours.
The family would host a reception for the newlyweds at a city hotel this evening and the fugitive don, who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, was likely to view the event via video calling on Skype.
The Mumbai Police crime branch has directed the anti-extortion cell to keep a close watch at the event.
Police personnel will maintain a strict vigil on the proceedings, a senior official said.
Police did not rule out rival gangsters trying to disturb the peace.
Alishah's elder brother Danish had died in a road accident in 2006. His sister Umaira got married in May 2015.
