From being badmouthed by his alleged ex Sunita Rajwar to now reportedly spying on his wife, Nawaz seems to have become controversy's favourite child.

An India Today report claimed that Rizwan Siddiqui was alleged to have illegally obtained the Call Detail Record details of the actor's estranged wife Sheeba, who is now engaged in bitter divorce battle with him. He maintains that the claims are false and random. After creating an unprecedented uproar with his memoir, the 43-year-old was summoned by Thane Police for investigations in the Call Data Record case on Friday.

"Last evening, I was helping my daughter to prepare her school project Hydroelectric Power Generator and went to her school this morning for Project Exhibition". Police are investigating an inter-state CDR (call detail record) racket run by private detectives in Mumbai and Thane. It is with regards to this case that Nawazuddin Siddiqui's name had popped up. "To my surprise the media had questions about some random allegations on me #Disgust".

"We arrested 11 people and after interrogating three, we found that Rizwan Siddiqui extracted CDRs of Nawazuddin Siddiqui's wife", he said.

The matter is part of the larger CDR leakage racket that involves private detectives illegally sourcing CDR of people for their clients.

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