The Delhi High Court said yesterday that Tejpal's bail request will be decided on Friday to refuse to stop Goa police from arresting him before that.
Tejpal earlier filed a petition with the High Court claiming that there was a conspiracy behind the allegations of sexual assault and that the female journalist was lying and describing the incident as a "easy joke ".

Chaudhry earlier disagreed with the allegations she had avoided going to the police station to testify on the matter.
While initially insisting that she should not go to the police station, young female journalists have the right to decide what to do with the case.
"The information in the media is wrong," said Chowdhury.
I have sent an email to the police.
There is a lot of misinformation going around.
I can't provide any evidence.
I'm working with Delhi police.
Tejpal said the young reporter's description of the incident was not entirely accurate.
But in an email sent to her on Tuesday, he admitted that "shameful misjudgment resulted in me trying to engage you sexually twice in November 7 and November 8, 2013, although you obviously don't want me to pay so much attention to you.
"The state government directed Goa police to investigate the allegations contained in her email to Chowdhury.
The email was leaked to the media.
FIR against Tejpal lists rape of persons with power over women, an offence with a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of imprisonment.
