Goa Police to seek 14 days remand for Tarun Tejpal
December 1, 2013, 10:22 am

Police, who on Saturday arrested Tehelka founder Tarun Tejpal for rape, are likely to seek 14 days police remand when they produce him before a judicial magistrate on Sunday.

Sources in the crime branch, which is investigating the case, said that police custody was necessary to obtain a confession from Tejpal, who has admitted to raping a junior colleague in intra-office communication, but has denied any wrongdoing in public statements.

His anticipatory bail petition has been rejected by a Goa court.

"We will be producing him before a holiday court magistrate in Panaji later in the day," a source said.

Tejpal, who was formally arrested late Saturday, was later sent to a government hospital for medical examination and was later lodged in police lock up.
