Bhopal: In an effort to re-launch her career in Bollywood, actress and underworld mafia Abu Salem’s former girlfriend Monica Bedi wants a new passport. In this regard, she has filed a petition at Jabalpur High Court requesting for a new passport to go abroad for film shooting.

In the petition, Bedi has claimed that she was innocent and had been charged on fake allegations.  While hearing the petition, Justice NK Gupta has asked Superintendent of Police to present his opinion and objections if any, on this issue.
The next hearing on the petition is scheduled for July 25.

After spending a long time in jail on the charges of carrying fake passport Bedi was last seen in a TV reality show.

An FIR was lodged in the Kohefiza police station for having a fake passport in the name of Abu Salem’s wife. She was set free by the Bhopal court in 2007.  The review petition filed by the state government against the decision to acquit Bedi in the case is still pending in the high court.
