Prosecution's arguments:

All versions of victims statement are the same, there are no embellishments of any sorts.

Tejpal changing colours like a chameleon.

Woman consistent, Tejpal tendered an apology. (Prosecution gives court assessment of CCTV footage recovered from the Goa hotel.)

It's clear it's a prima facie case. Goa police want him arrested for custodial interrogation.

Tejpal wants to cooperate, but on his own terms.

We went looking for him and he was not available. Tejpal's wife refused to tell us where he was.

CCTV footage confirms sexual assault to a certain extent.

Custodial interrogation of Tejpal needed.

Tejpal not consistent, misguiding people.

Tejpal's 'immaculate reputation' already gone for a toss.

Can't lament law is draconian. It came after someone lost her life.

Political motivation is no argument for bail.

Tejpal adding salt to injury to the integrity of the girl. How bold she has been to come out in the open and register a complaint.

Tejpal in a position to influence and he has done it. Tejpal derided the victim. Cooperation is only a bogie. We oppose anticipatory bail for Tejpal.
