Sex assault case: Police to seek 14 days remand for Tarun Tejpal

Police, who Saturday arrested Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal for rape, are likely to seek 14 days police remand when they produce him before a judicial magistrate 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.
