Dawood's daughter, Miandad's son wedded

July 24, 2005 17:27 IST

Wrapped under a cloak of secrecy and attended by a few hundred guests, the much hyped wedding of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's daughter with former Pakistani test cricketer Javed Miandad's son was solemnised at a five star hotel in Dubai with media being prevented from covering the event.

While Miandad, dressed in a formal black suit, and his wife, wearing a silver-coloured saree, attended the late night ceremony on Saturday, it was not clear whether Dawood, who is based in Karachi and wanted by India in connection with the 1994 Mumbai serial bomb blasts, was present at the wedding.

Media persons, especially a large contingent of reporters from India, were in Dubai to cover the event, but were disappointed as security guards kept them out of the venue.

However, two Indian journalists were allowed inside, but barred from taking pictures.

According to sources, Indian intelligence agencies kept a close watch at the venue of the wedding of Dawood's daughter Mahrukh and Miandad's son Junaid, to find out who attended the wedding from India, especially from Mumbai.

However, it is believed that no big shots from either Bollywood or the sports circuit were present at the lavish ceremony.
