"It was further submitted that at the stage of bail it is obligatory/ imperative for the court to harmonise the presumption of innocence of the accused with the materials collected in course of investigation which in light of the sensitive nature of facts in the present case, cannot be done in public gaze."
Tejpal was on Saturday sent to 10 more days in jail under judicial custody by a Panaji magistrate’s court.
He has already spent 10 days in police custody and 23 days in jail under judicial custody, since his arrest on November 30, 2013, for sexually assaulting a junior colleague. The prosecution is yet to argue its case against the bail. The hearing will continue on Tuesday.
