Rizwan Siddiquee now accused of illegally accessing personal information of actress Akruti Nagpal in her divorce case
Actress Akruti Nagpal, who has worked in a number of Hindi, Tamil and Telegu films, has filed a police complaint about her personal information being illegally accessed and misused in her divorce case by one of the city's top lawyers, Rizwan Siddiqui, who has been representing Nagpal's husband in the court.
Mumbai Mirror reports that the Thane crime branch has detained Rizwan in the Call Details Record (CDR) case after they received Nagpal's complaint. The police confirmed that Nagpal has accused the lawyer of unlawfully retrieving her call records. Rizwan is the same person who has been accused of accessing actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's wife's call records too.
“Only after reading about the ongoing CDR controversy and Rizwan’s suspected role in it, did I realise that obtaining such information is illegal. So I approached Thane crime branch,” Akruti Nagpal told Mumbai Mirror.
The CDR controversy also involves Nawazuddin Siddiqui's brother Shamas. The police confirmed that they got to know Rizwan and Shamas were in touch, and Shamas soon will be summoned for a statement.
Nagpal, who was seen in films like Holiday and Khuddar, married Anil Mistry in 1995 and they got separated in the 2012. Later, Nagpal filed a police complaint about her former husband's illegal assets. The Anti-Corruption Bureau found Mistry's illegal assets worth Rs 8 crores. Mistry is an engineer posted in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
As Rizwan was sent to Thane police's custody, his lawyer Rizwan Merchant told the media that his client was made a scapegoat to protect Nawazuddin and his brother.
