Panaji, Jan 15 IANS | 11 months ago

A Goa court Wednesday will decide on Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal's petition for bail in a sexual assault case, which had led to his arrest Nov 30, 2013.

Tejpal has spent a month and a half cumulatively in police and judicial custody.

He has been accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a junior colleague in a Goa resort, during ThinkFest, a high-profile conference organised by Tejpal and his team at a Goa resort.

Tejpal is currently lodged at the Sada sub-jail in the port town of Vasco, 35 km from here, as prisoner number 624.

Tejpal, known for path-breaking investigative stories, was booked Nov 22, 2013, after a junior colleague accused him of sexual assault in an elevator of a five-star resort in Goa.
