Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is set to tie the knot with fiancee Sakshi Rawat at a very private affair on the outskirts of Dehradun Sunday evening, a day after the couple's hush-hush engagement.
The mahurat, or auspicious time, for the wedding has been fixed for 8.35 p.m. and the venue is a country villa owned by former Rajasthan chief minister and Bharatiya Janata Party leader Vasundhara Raje, a highly-placed source told IANS.
The country villa is on the Dehradun-Chakrata road, 20 km away from the place where his engagement was held Saturday, at Bhagirath resort.
The media is being kept far away. The hordes of media persons and television OB vans gathered there is not being allowed to proceed by private security guards, around more than one and a half kilometre from the venue, the source said.
Director General of Police Uttarakhand, Subhash Joshi told IANS that he too has not been invited. "I have not got an invite. They are taking the assistance of local police."
"They want to have their privacy and we don't want to encroach on it," he said.
Among the cricketers who have arrived are Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra and R.P. Singh. Among Bollywood personalities, John Abraham is reported to have reached the venue.
The girl's cousin Abhilasha Bhisht, a Deputy Inspector General of Police who is on deputation on an UN assignment, belongs to the place, said a source.
Dhoni has been reported to have visited Dehradun and Mussoori frequently over the last two years. The girl's father and Dhoni's father were working together in Ranchi. Her grandfather, a retired divisional forest officer, lives in Dehradun.
