H1B visa status says "Refused" on the day of interview after getting 221g white slip

Hi All,

I had my H1b visa interview on April 23rd and during interview VO asked some basic questions about client and in the end he took my passport and handed me 221g slip saying my case needs some administration processing. I checked my status after couple of hours and it says “Refused”. I am not sure if the processing is done within hours. Please help me in understanding if this means denial.
