Bhopal, Jan 29 (UNI) A local court today fixed February 12 as the next date of hearing in the underworld don Abu Salem's fake passport case.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Arvind Raghuvanshi fixed the next date of hearing as CJM Ajay Srivastava was on leave.
District Prosecuting officer A K Kansana submitted an application requesting extension of judicial custody of Salem, as investigation into the matter was yet to be completed.
On November 28, 2001, a case was registered at the Koh-i-Fiza Police Station against Salem, his wife Samira Jumani and actress-girlfriend Monica Bedi for possessing fake passports.
The fake passports were made at the regional passport office using the names Danish Baig, Rubina Baig and Fauzia Osman. A local court had acquitted Monica in the case earlier.
On the basis of a production warrant by a local court, Salem was brought to the state capital from Arthur Road jail in Mumbai and presented before it on November 12, 2007.
