The Interpol issued a red corner notice for Samira Jumani, the first wife of extradited underworld don Abu Salem. Jumani is wanted for offences like criminal conspiracy, fraud and forgery. Samira, is wanted by Interpol, Central Bureau of Investigation sources had claimed that Salem’s ex-wife could be privy to many secrets about the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts accused. Samira, whom Salem married in early 90s, after facing an abduction case filed by her parents, had escaped to Dubai with Salem after the serial bomb blasts in 1993. She was booked in 1997 for procuring a forged passport from Lucknow in the name of Sabina Azmi in July 1993, when Salem also procured a forged passport from Lucknow in the name of Akil Ahmed Azmi. The couple has an 8-year-old son from their marriage who stays with his mother. Salem has claimed that he divorced Samira after his affair and subsequent marriage with starlet Monica Bedi in late 90s. It was generally believed that more than Monica, it was Samira who holds keys to several intricate details about Salem and his involvement in blasts, his extortion business and other interests. Salem is alleged to have made investments in real estate in Samira’s name. Monica got a place in Salem’s heart with her performance in a Hindi movie. She was introduced to Salem in a party in Dubai and then came another movie followed by another; till Bhai ordered his fiancee to call it a day and settle down. The two did. The two managed to reside in USA on fictitious identities with voluminous property, money, credit cards and what not.
Monica thought it was love from her side; as well as from him; but it was not so. She didn’t have time to think and things were happening very fast till Salem came to be arrested in Lisbon. The separation in Portuguese jail gave Monica time to think over, take a self-retrospective when she realised that it was a bad dream. The two were deported to India after a term in Portuguese jail. Monica got her share and is now leading a simple life in Mumbai. She had turned down the flowers and greetings sent by Salem to her in Jail in Madhya Pradesh. Salem wanted to boast his affair with her for the sake of keeping his glamour alive in media. She did not however heed this time. Underworld follows the trends in the main world.
