Dawood Ibrahim’s nephew Alishah Parkar on Wednesday tied the knot with the daughter of a Mumbai-based businessman in a traditional Muslim ceremony in Mumbai.
Alishah, the son of Dawood’s late sister Haseena Parkar, and Aisha Nagani got married at a mosque in Nagpada area of south Mumbai. The ceremony was attended by their family members and close friends and closely guarded by Mumbai police.
Dawood Ibrahim’s daughter is married to cricketer Javed Miandad’s son.
The marriage function started late morning and lasted for about one-and-a-half hour. A reception for the newlyweds was held at a city hotel on Wednesday evening. The Mumbai police crime branch directed the anti-extortion cell to keep a close watch at the event. Police personnel were to maintain a strict vigil on the proceedings, a senior official said, according to Indian media. The police did not rule out rival gangsters trying to disturb the peace.
