Tejpal’s judicial custody extended

The judicial custody of Tehelka founder Tarun Tejpal was Saturday extended by 10 days by a local court here. Tejpal was earlier remanded in 12-day judicial custody after his police remand had expired.

The 50-year-old was arrested on November 30 last year after his anticipatory bail was rejected. A woman colleague had accused Tejpal of sexually assaulting her twice on November 7 and 8 in Goa.

Meanwhile, a district and sessions court reserved its order on Tejpal's bail application till January 7.
