Sex case: Tejpal's remand ends today

Panaji, Jan 4 : Former Tehelka Editor-in-Chief and sexual assault accused Tarun Tejpal's judicial custody ends today.


The Goa Police said they will seek another 14-day custody for Tejpal.

His bail plea will also be heard on Saturday.

On Dec 23, a Goa court extended his judicial custody till Jan 4.

The court on Dec 11 sent him to a 12-day judicial custody after his police custody ended the same day.

He has been booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 376 (2) (f) and 376 C.

The court on Dec 7 extended by four days Tejpal's police custody, who was arrested for sexually assaulting a woman journalist of his organization.

Tejpal was produced in the court on Dec 7 after his six-day police custody ended.

The prosecution reportedly asked for a eight-day custody of Tejpal.

Tejpal, who was arrested by the Goa Police on Nov 30 after his anticipatory bail was rejected in the case of a sexual assault charge, was sent to a six-day police custody on Dec 1, in response to a 14-day remand sought by the police for investigation.

Tejpal allegedly sexually assaulted a woman journalist of his organisation in an elevator of Grand Hyatt Goa during the Think festival of Tehelka where ironically the participants were debating on issues like rape. The action of Tejpal is considered as rape under the new definition of the anti-rape law in India.
