Thane(PTI): The Thane Police’s Crime Branch would be questioning some film personalities in connection with the Call Detail Record (CDR) racket that was busted here in January, a senior official said.

He, however, refused to divulge the names of these persons stating that it would hamper the probe.

The racket was revealed on January 24 when police, acting on a tip off, nabbed four private detectives from Kalwa in the district.

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

So far, police officials said, over a dozen people had been probed for the racket which involved the illegal procurement and sale of CDRs of private individuals.
