Panaji, Feb 28 IANS | 7 months ago

Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal has been booked for possession of a mobile phone inside prison premises, an official said Friday.


Tejpal is one of the seven inmates at Vasco's Sada sub jail, located 35 km from here, who were found with a mobile phone during a surprise raid Sunday (Feb 23).

Tejpal, police said, was booked late Thursday under Sections 120 (b), 130 and 188 IPC and violation of other sections of the Prison Act.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said Tejpal's prison cell was raided following a tip-off by journalists based in Delhi, who informed the government about the Tehelka founder making calls to the national capital every morning.

Tejpal has been lodged in judicial custody for nearly two months, after a former junior colleague accused him of raping her twice during a conference in Goa held in November.
