Advocate Rizwan Siddique was the go-to lawyer for many Bollywood bigwigs in the industry. But now, his arrest has opened a can of worms and more and more stars are getting engulfed into it.
After Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the Thane (Mumbai police) issued summons to Ayesha Shroff, Tiger Shroff's mother. She was later interrogated in the case by the police. The police has confirmed that Kangana Ranaut has also been named in the case. The case has now been transferred to the Crime Branch of Maharashtra Police. Following the interrogation of arrested lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui, the Thane police recovered actor Sahil Khan’s call details. According to Thane police crime branch DCP Abhishek Trimukhe, the details were shared with Siddiqui by Ayesha Shroff. "Probe found that Ayesha Shroff procured CDR of Sahil Khan and shared it with Rizwan, this was revealed in an analysis of Rizwan's mobile," said DCP Abhishek Trimukhe. Ayesha allegedly had an affair with actor Sahil Khan and after a dispute between them, the former procured the CDRs of the actor and gave it to Siddiqui. In 2014, Ayesha had filed a case of cheating against Sahil Khan at Bandra Police Station that he cheated her of Rs 5 crores, which was given by her for their business venture. "Rizwan Siddiqui was her advocate and she gave him the CDR to strengthen her case against CDR. We want to know from where did she obtained the CDR and, hence, will summon her tomorrow (sic)," Trimukhe added.
The senior police official further said that popular Bollywood actress and national award winner Kangana Ranaut had also shared actor Hrithik Roshan’s mobile number with Siddiqui in 2016. "Investigation has revealed that Kangana had shared Hrithik's mobile number with the accused Rizwan Siddiqui in 2016, a reason for that is not known yet, the probe is on," said Trimukhe. It is alleged that a racket of private detectives was selling illegally obtained CDRs to lawyers and others. On March 19, Telugu actress Akruti Nagpal gave her statement to Thane Police that Rizwan had got CDR details of her to help her husband Anil Mistry in their divorce case.
The Thane police have so far arrested 12 persons in the case. None of the celebrities involved in the case have been arrested yet.
