The former was charged for unlawful bribing while the later was accused of drug trafficking in 2007.
A probe into the deposit made by Siddiqui worth $100 million is being carried out by the Justice Department. Earlier, he has served as a Vice President at Fry’s Electronics and was taken into custody in 2009 for taking unlawful payments and has got a six-year imprisonment.
