Bedi has been lodged in Chanchalguda jail in Hyderabad since November 25 in connection with the case while Salem is currently in judicial remand in Mumbai in connection with 1993 serial bomb blast and Pradeep Jain murder case.

Bedi is facing charges of securing a passport in 2001 under a fictitious name and address from Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. She has been booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code and Passport Act.

The CBI sought Monica's specimen signatures and endorsement of her statement on eight pages. After her counsel represented that she cannot affix her signature in standing posture, she was permitted to be seated in the court. Salem is currently in judicial remand in Mumbai in connection with 1993 serial bomb blast and Pradeep Jain murder case.
