Sexual assault: Tejpal in court for hearing

Panaji, Dec 7 : Former Tehelka Editor-in-Chief Tarun Tejpal, who was arrested for sexually assaulting a woman journalist of his organization, was produced in a local court on Saturday after his six-day police custody ended.


The prosecution will reportedly ask for a eight-day custody of Tejpal.

Tejpal, who was arrested by the Goa Police on Saturday after his anticipatory bail was rejected in the case of a sexual assault charge, was sent to a six-day police custody on Sunday, in response to a 14-day remand sought by the police for investigation.

Tejpal allegedly sexually assaulted a woman journalist of his organisation in an elevator of Grand Hyatt Goa during the Think festival of Tehelka where ironically the participants were debating on issues like rape. The action of Tejpal is considered as rape under the new definition of the anti-rape law in India.
