A Goa court Wednesday will decide on Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal's petition seeking a bail in the rape case, which had led to his arrest November 30, 2013.

Tejpal has already spent a month and half behind bars, both in police as well as judicial custody.

He has been accused of allegedly raping a junior colleague in a Goa resort, during ThinkFest, a high profile conference organised by Tejpal and his team at a Goa resort.

Tejpal is currently lodged at the Sada sub jail in the port town of Vasco, 35 km from here, as prisoner number 624.

Tejpal, who was editor of Tehelka- a weekly newspaper known for path breaking investigative stories was booked for rape on November 22, 2012, after a junior colleague accused him of allegedly raping her in an elevator of a five star resort in Goa.
