Dawood Ibrahim’s nephew Zunaid Tungekar threw a lavish wedding reception at the Tulip Star hotel in Juhu on Friday. According to a Times of India report, Mumbai police and Anti-Terrorism squad were keeping an eye on the function if they could spot any India’s most wanted mafia members.

Zunaid, the elder son of Dawood’s sister Farzana  came back last year from Dubai to take over his father’s construction business. Farzana lives with her husband Saud Tungekar in Bandra and Mazgaon.

The ‘nikah’ took place in the girl’s native at Pen in Raigad district on Tuesday and the wedding reception called 'walima-e-daawat' on Friday.

Sources told TOI, that the police did not see Dawood’s younger brother Iqbal Kaskar in the crowd till 10.30 PM, only the younger sister of Iqbal, Zaitoon was present throughout the event with her husband Hamid Antuley.

Iqbal has been cautious since the attempted murder on him on 2011 by the Chhota Rajan's (boss of another major crime syndicate) men.

Over 600 people appeared for the most-exorbitant and heavily guarded wedding. Each plate of food that included a range of cuisines easily costs about 1,000 – 1,500 per plate. However, the underworld members were cautious and did not appear for the wedding.
