A district court here on Monday extended the judicial custody of Tehelka magazine founder editor Tarun Tejpal, who has been charged of sexually harassing a woman journalist, by 12 days. At the end of the 12-day initial custody, Judicial Magistrate first class Sarika Faldesai extended the judicial custody of Tejpal. Tejpal's lawyers have moved a petition in the court seeking his bail. The petition states that 'the accused has not been questioned by police since he was lodged in judicial custody'.
