Former managing editor of Tehelka Shoma Chaudhury arrived at a Goa court on Saturday to record her statement in the alleged rape case filed against the news weekly's founder-editor Tarun Tejpal.

Chaudhury arrived from New Delhi in Goa Friday night and appeared before the Judicial Magistrate First Class Panaji on Saturday, where her statement would be recorded through the day.

Tarun Tejpal will also be produced in court later in the day as his 6 day remand in police custody expires on Saturday.

Police are expected to seek Tejpal's extension for a week more.

Tejpal has been accused of allegedly raping a junior employee at a Goa resort last month.
