Bhopal, Jan 29 (UNI) A local court today fixed February 12 as the date for next hearing in a fake passport case involving underworld don Abu Salem.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Arvind Raghuvanshi fixed the next date of hearing in the case 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 in the matter was not yet 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 for having fake passports made at the regional passport office using the names Danish Baig, Rubina Baig and Fauzia Osman respectively. 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.
