The man suspected of killing his 27-year-old wife—and the mother of his two sons—on a NJ street has been portrayed as a monster by his wife's grieving family. The family of Nazish Noorani, who was fatally shot in the heart, says that Kashif Parvaiz repeatedly lied to them and abused Noorani. Now, a woman claims that Parvaiz swindled her gay stepson out of a lucrative Queens apartment building.
The Post reports, "Less than two years ago, handsome alleged killer Kashif Parvaiz, 26, had persuaded a frail, older gay man to sign over to him his share of a Queens apartment building that is now about to be sold for more than $9 million... The contract for the sale was signed Tuesday -- only hours before Parvaiz's beautiful wife, Nazish Noorani, was blown away... Ragusa's family -- alarmed over his increasingly bizarre relationship with the younger man -- had tried to block the move, going to court just days before the scheduled transfer in a bid to take control of his finances, but failed."
Parvaiz's 30% share of the building, after the sale, would amount to about $2 million. Ragusa's stepmother Marguerite Ragusa, who has a 20% share of the building, "Parvaiz] was a great con man. Why else would Marty [hand over his share]?" The Post adds, "Martin and Parvaiz met 12 years ago, when Parvaiz was 14 and doing maintenance work on Ragusa's home at 440 E. 57th St., sources said. Over the years, Parvaiz grew to have a Svengali-like hold on Martin, relatives said. Mrs. Ragusa said that her stepson is gay and that the smooth-talking Parvaiz would often spend the night at his home, though she did not know if they had a sexual relationship."
Martin Ragusa had spoken to the Post last week, standing up for Parvaiz (before Parvaiz allegedly admitted the murder plot to NJ cops) and referred to the 26-year-old murder suspect as his "son," "Who shoots a person nine times, especially a person who has kids?... He graduated summa cum laude from Columbia [University]. They wanted him in Harvard... And he wanted that. Because he wanted to get that [architecture] degree to build anywhere he wanted to build." However, neither school has records of Parvaiz being a student or accepted there.
