Dawood Ibrahim nephew’s nikah in Mumbai today; underworld don to attend via Skype

, 11:27 AM IST

Mumbai: Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim will on Wednesday attend the wedding of his nephew Alishah Parkar in Mumbai via Skype.

The Mumbai Police and other security agencies are going to keep a close watch on the event, which is likely to be attended by the mafia don’s close aides.

Alishah, the son of Dawood’s late sister Hasina Parkar, will marry Aisha Nagani, the daughter of a city-based businessman at a hotel here.

Mumbai Police’s Crime Branch has asked the anti-extortion cell to keep a hawk-eye vigil on the events.

“Police will keep a close watch on the proceedings as there is a possibility of rival gangsters trying to disturb the peace,” a senior police official said.

Alishah’s elder brother Danish had died in a road accident in 2006, while his sister Umaira got married in May last year.

Dawood, the chief conspirator of the 1993 Mumbai blasts, is believed to be in Pakistan. The Indian government has from time to time provided Pakistan details of the underworld don’s Pakistani passports and reported addresses there so as to locate and hand him over to New Delhi.
