Crime branch officials said Tejpal`s elder daughter Tiya was questioned for over two hours at the crime branch office at Dona Paula near here.
Tiya has been quoted by the victim woman in the email which she had sent to magazine’s former Managing Editor Shoma Chaudhury. Tejpal’s daughter was reportedly informed about the incident by the victim.
Crime branch officials said Tiya was called to corroborate some facts which were mentioned by the victim and also spelt out by Tejpal during his interrogation.
Meanwhile, three witnesses in this case would be deposing before the magistrate tomorrow while Chaudhury would depose before magistrate on Saturday to record their statements.
