Mumbai Police monitor reception which had 700 guests and invitees
Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim who fled India in 90s and is presently living in Pakistan was observing the entire reception through video-conferencing or through Skype
Mumbai/Nagpur: Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim’s nephew Alishah Parkar on August 17, 2016 got married with the daughter of a Mumbai city-based businessman Aisha Nagani in a traditional Muslim ceremony.
As many as 700 guests and invitees attend the wedding reception of Dawood Ibrahim’s nephew in Mumbai. The family of fugitive Mafia Don Dawood Ibrahim celebrated the wedding of his nephew to the daughter of a local businessman in Mumbai last night.
Sources said that all the invitees were told that cell-phones would not be allowed at the wedding reception which was hosted at a five-star hotel in Mumbai. However, the media has accessed a video of the event.
The groom is Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena’s son Alishah Parkar. The groom’s mother Haseena died two years ago. The groom Alishah Parkar was seen on a stage kitted out with tinsel and flowers. The wedding or Nikaah ceremony was held at a mosque in Nagpada area in the morning a few hours before the wedding reception.
Family sources have not revealed if Dawood Ibrahim, who lives in Karachi, viewed the ceremony on Skype as expected. Family sources had said that the gangster’s brother Iqbal Kaskar who was granted bail in an extortion case last year, was to attend the Nikaah. However, sources in the family claimed that he was not seen at the reception last night. The Mumbai police had kept strict vigil and a hawk’s eye on the entire event. In spite of this event being a strictly family event, a handful of media-persons were present outside the mosque and the family members kept them at bay.
Dawood Ibrahim aged 60 years fled India after he was accused of funding and orchestrating 1993’s communal riots in Mumbai in which 257 people were killed and more than 700 injured. He still controls D Company, a crime syndicate with vast businesses in murder, extortion and weapons-smuggling.
