Missing Bollywood starlet Laila Khan is dead: police

The Jammu and Kashmir Police has said that the Bollywood starlet, Laila Khan, who was missing is now dead. The police said that Laila and her family members were killed in Mumbai.

Pervez Ahmed Tak, who was in the custody has spilled the beans, claimed the police. Pakistan-born Bollywood starlet Laila Khan went missing with her family about an year ago, from a shop in Kishtwar town on May 29.

Earlier, Tak had reportedly said that Laila married a close aide of India’s most wanted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim.

The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) had been looking for the actor and her family including the mother who reportedly left Mumbai for Kishtwar with one Ateeq Khan, a Kashmiri, to attend a wedding. The family was reportedly missing ever since.

Laila’s father, Nadir Shah Patel, had filed a complaint at a Mumbai police station stating that his daughter has gone missing along with her mother Saleena Patel, sister Azmina Patel, her stepfather Asif Sheikh and family friend Pervez Iqbal Tak.
