Parkar (55), stayed at her posh first floor apartment in the Gorden Hall building at Nagpada. She is survived by two daughters. Her eldest son, Danish died a few years ago in a road accident.
Sources said that Parkar, who was observing Ramazan, complained of chest pain and was rushed to nearby Habib Hospital where she is learnt to have breathed last.
Her flat at the Gorden Hall was well guarded by a few people and a double door. She is the seventh child in a family of 12 kids. Her father, Mohammed Ibrahim, was a police head constable in Mumbai crime branch.
She was also facing a criminal case of extortion but was never arrested. The case was about a Rs one crore investment by a real estate broker, Vinod Avlani, who claimed Parker and her associates had taken Rs one crore for construction but later refused to give him back and threatened with dire consequences. Parkar's lawyer in the court said it was a case of cheating and not extortion and she was granted anticipatory bail in this 2005 case.
