Tehelka case: Additional charges invoked on Tejpal,police remand extended

Meanwhile,the statement of former Tehelka managing editor Shoma Chaudhury was recorded.

A Goa court on Saturday extended the police remand of Tehelka founder-editor Tarun Tejpal,who has been accused of rape by a female colleague.

In addition to this,some additional charges have been invoked against Tejpal under Sections 341 (wrongful restraint),342 (wrongful confinement),376(2)(f) and 376(C) of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013.

The hearing over the extension of police remand of Tejpal began in the court of judicial magistrate Kshama Joshi. As the hearing began,the prosecution sought an extension of eight days,thereby taking the number of days in police remand to 14.

However,the defence countered the demand saying Tejpal had already been interrogated by officials of all ranks,including Dy SP. The defence argued for judicial custody for Tejpal.
