The Thane Crime Branch, which is investigating the Call Detail Records (CDR) racket, summoned actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's brother Shamas yesterday for questioning. Officers have already recorded statements of Ayesha Shroff and Udita Goswami.

Unit I had issued a summons to Shamas, and accordingly, he presented himself in the crime branch for recording his statement on Monday. Officers said Shamas was summoned after his number was found in the call details list of Rizwan Siddiqui, lawyer of Nawazuddin's wife, on whom the actor had allegedly spied by procuring her CDR. Thane Crime Branch DCP Abhishek Trimukhe said, "Shamas had allegedly procured CDR of Nawazuddin's wife on his behalf. He has given the names of a few people and other important information in the case. We are verifying it and will soon take further action."
