The former woman journalist with Tehelka magazine, who accused 50-year-old Tejpal of sexual assault, and the accused were with the Hollywood star a little before the alleged offence took place in November last year.
The Crime Branch probing the case had sent a questionnaire to De Niro earlier this month, requesting him to respond to it.
"We are still waiting for the response despite sending him the reminder," a senior crime branch official said on Monday.
The actor was contacted through his attorney before sending the questions.
The police are expected to file a charge sheet in the case by month end.
The investigating officer has already recorded several statements, including that of former Tehelka managing editor Shoma Chaudhury and Tejpal`s daughter, along with the deposition of the victim in connection with the case.
Tejpal is currently lodged in Sada sub jail in judicial custody after a local court rejected his bail plea.
