Hyderabad: The special CBI court trying underworld don Abu Salem in a fake passport case today recorded the statements of four witnesses.

The witnesses included an Investigation Officer of the nine-year-old case. With this, the court has so far recorded the statements of 35 witnesses and four more are to be examined.

The trial against the gangster, extradited from Portugal in 2005, for obtaining a passport on fictitious name in 2001 from Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh began on June 18 last year after CBI filed a case against Salem and others.

Actress Monica Bedi, a co-accused and Salem's former companion, had been released on bail by the Supreme Court two years ago.
