Mumbai: The talented Bollywood actor who is known for his choice of work was summoned by Thane Police last week in relation with the Call Detail Record case in January earlier this year.
Reportedly, as per statements by some of the accused, Nawazuddin had allegedly acquired CDRs of his wife’s phone through an advocate by hiring a private sleuth to keep an eye on her contacts and whereabouts.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Abhishek Trimukhi while addressing media said that Siddiqui, his wife Sheeba and lawyer had been called for recording their statement after some of the arrested accused had told police that an advocate named Rizwan Siddiqui had obtained call records of the ‘Kahani’ actor’s wife from private detectives.
“Three arrested accused, Prasad Palekar, Jigar Makhwana and Ajinkya Nagargoje and informed the police that an advocate had obtained the CDRs of Siddiqui’s wife from private detectives. Hence to verify the same, we have summoned them,” Trimukhi said.
The CDR scam came into light on January 24 when Thane Police nabbed four private detectives from Kalwa. The police had identified the four as Prashant Palekar (49), Makesh Pandian (42), Samresh Jha (32) alias Pratik Mohpal and Jigar Makwana (35). The four arrested detectives had revealed the name of renowned woman detective Rajani Pandit who was also arrested by the police.
