The Bombay High Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of former Tehelka Editor-in-Chief and sexual assault accused Tarun Tejpal's bail petition till Mar 7.


In an open court, the senior journalist's application will be heard.

The former Tehelka Editor-in-Chief, who was arrested by the Goa Police on Nov 30, has been charged with sexual harassment and other sections of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013.

Tejpal allegedly sexually assaulted a woman journalist of his organization in an elevator of Grand Hyatt Goa during the Think festival of Tehelka where ironically the participants were debating on issues like rape.
