Thane police summoned actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Actor Nawazuddin Siddhiqui was summoned by Thane police for allegedly spying on his estranged wife. His lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui is alleged to have unlawfully attained the Call Detail Record (CDR) details of Sheeba, the actor estranged wife. She is locked in a bitter divorce battle with him.

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.

The four, whom the police identified was Makesh Pandian (42), Prashant Palekar (49), Jigar Makwana (35) and Samresh Jha (32) alias Pratik Mohpal. They at that the time revealed the name of renowned woman detective Rajani Pandit who too was later arrested.
