Laila Khan had gone missing along with her mother Saleena Patel, sister Azmina, brother and a cousin from Mumbai last year. The search for her had exposed her dubious links with the underworld. Parvez Tak, who is a family friend of the Khans, was arrested a couple of weeks ago from Jammu in connection with another case. Tak reportedly revealed that Laila and the other family members were killed on February 4, 2011.
Further interrogations reveal that Laila and her family was killed over a property dispute. Tak had earlier confessed that Laila had married a close aide of dreaded fugitive Dawood Ibrahim. Tak's statements have been contradictory and hence the real reason behind her murder is still unsure.
