A Special Central Bureau of Investigation court on Wednesday allowed paternal uncle of Monica Bedi, girlfriend of underworld don Abu Salem, to meet her Thursday if she wanted to.
After hearing a petition by Bedi's uncle Purushotham Lal Bedi, through a Delhi-based lawyer, CBI Judge C V Subramanyam directed the Chanchalguda Jail Superintendent to allow him to meet Bedi before 10:30 AM on Thursday if she was willing.
The court on Tuesday had disallowed an application of lawyer Ruchir Batra seeking permission to allow Bedi's uncle, who arrived from Hoshiarpur in Punjab, to meet her. Bedi is in judicial remand till November 25 and she is lodged in Chanchalguda jail in Hyderabad on charges of a passport forgery case.
