Tarun Tejpal's remand extended by four days
After the Goa police insisted on more time for questioning Tarun Tejpal, the Tehelka founder's remand was extended by four days
Tehelka founder and editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal’s remand in police custody was extended by four days on Saturday.
The extension was given by a local magistrate here after the police insisted on more time to question Tejpal as well as to corroborate the sequence of events leading to the alleged sexual assault.
Tejpal has been accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a junior colleague in the elevator of a five star hotel in the Goan capital Nov 7 and 8 when Thinkfest, an event organised by the magazine, was being held. Tejpal has already spent six days in police custody.
