Monica Bedi, Bollywood starlet and girlfriend of underworld don Abu Salem, who was extradited along with the gangster, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation, sources said.
Bedi would be produced in a Mumbai court Friday afternoon, the sources said adding, then she would be transferred to Bhopal for trial on a transit remand.
She will be taken to Hyderabad on Friday evening.
Salem and Bedi face criminal charges for obtaining passports under fake names.

Bedi has been extradited in two cases, including a passport forgery case in Kurnool (Andhra Pradesh) and another case in Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh).
