In September 2002, she was arrested along with fugitive underworld don Abu Salem by the Lisbon police for entering Portugal with forged documents. They served jail sentence in Portugal. After years of legal battle, they were deported to India on 11 November 2005, after India promised Portugal that Salem would not receive the death sentence.

CBI had filed a case against Bedi under section 420 (cheating), 120 B (criminal conspiracy) and section 12 of the Passport Act for procuring a passport on a fictitious name.
