Nawazuddin Siddhiqui spying on wife Anjali, police confirmed

Thane police summoned Nawazuddin Siddhiqui for spying on his wife Anjali Siddhiqui.  

The actor's lawyer is said to have obtained the CDR with the help of one Prashant Palekar, who is a private detective. He was arrested by Thane crime branch last month.

DCP Abhishek Trimukhe of Thane crime branch said, "We have summoned Nawazuddin, his lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui and wife Sheena to find out who is the one who ordered to obtain CDR illegally. CDR can be obtained only by an officer of the rank of SP. But the private detectives were selling CDR data to private clients for Rs.30,000-50000".

The phone prying row was reported on January 24 when police nabbed four private detectives from Kalwa in the district.

Nawaz was exposed when police nabbed four detectives in connection of spying. The four, whom the police identified was Makesh Pandian (42), Prashant Palekar (49), Jigar Makwana (35) and Samresh Jha (32) alias Pratik Mohpal. During the time of interrogation, they named their client Nawazuddin.

The 'Gangs of Wasseypur' star, on Saturday, responded to the reports doing the rounds of hiring detectives to get her call records.

He tweeted, "Last evening, I was helping my daughter to prepare her school project Hydroelectric Power Generator & went to her school this morning for Project Exhibition. To my surprise the media had questions about some random allegations on me #Disgust"

"Actually, CDRs (Compact Disc Recordable) are obtained only through authorised investigative agencies. But for that you need some permission from a senior cop. I guess the account was accessible to a constable in our department and he misused that accessibility to get a hard copy of Mrs Siddiqui's call records and handed it over to Nawaz. FYI, we have arrested that constable. We have also arrested a well-known private investigator  Rajani Pandit in this matter."

Aren't CDRs obtained through your mobile vendor, say Vodafone or Airtel? "That's right," said Thakre, "But they give that task to authorised investigative agencies."
