Monica Bedi files bail application in the Apex Court
New Delhi, Apr 29 (UNI) Monica Bedi, 'wife' of mafia don Abbu Salem, today filed a bail application in the Supreme Court contending that she had already faced trial in 'fake passport' case in Portugal from where she was extradited to India.
She had earlier challenged Madhya Pradesh High Court order dated March 6, 2006 vide which her bail application was dismissed.
The starlet is seeking bail in a case pending trial in Bhopal for allegedly using fake passport to escape from India.
In all she is facing two cases under section 420/120 B IPC in Bhopal and Hyderabad.
Bedi who belongs to Punjab came in contact with Abu Salem during her modelling days. The mafia don inducted her in Bollywood but she failed to click.
The bail application will come up for hearing in the Supreme Court on Monday. Both the cases have been investigated by the CBI and the trial is underway.
