The police "say" was filed in response to an anticipatory bail application by Tejpal's counsel Geeta Luthra earlier in the morning.

After hearing Tejpal's counsel, District and Sessions Judge Anuja Prabhudessai granted interim bail to Tejpal until 2.30 pm, while at the same time directing investigating officer Sunita Sawant to file a formal response before the court.
