Dawood Ibrahim's nephew gets married in Mumbai, underworld don likely to attend reception via Skype
Alishah Parkar, the nephew of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, today tied the knot with Aisha Nagani in a traditional Muslim ceremony in Mumbai.
Alishah, the son of Dawood's late sister Haseena Parkar, and Aisha Nagani, the daughter of a city-based businessman, got married at a mosque in Nagpada area of south Mumbai in the presence of their family members and close friends.
A handful of mediapersons were present outside the mosque and were kept at bay by family members.
The marriage rituals started at around 11 AM. The function lasted for about one-and-a-half hours and was attended by nearly 100 people.
The family would host a reception for the newly weds at a city hotel this evening and the fugitive don is likely to view the event via videocalling 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.
