In 2008, he was arrested for embezzlement, with the authorities charging him for illegally transferring more than $65 million. Why? Well, Siddiqui’s gambling problem came to light, which is when the authorities discovered that the money was taken for the sole purpose of paying off his gambling debt. He is known to owe money to multiple casinos and has tried a variety of things to pay off his debts but to little success. He was known to gamble extravagantly, and was said to have lost more than $8 million in a single day!
