tejpal

After court refused to drop charges against Tarun Tejpal, former editor-in-chief of Tehelka magazine, a Goa court is likely to frame charges against the journalist. It need be mentioned that Tarun Tejpal is accused of sexually assaulting and raping a former woman colleague in 2013. Tejpal, former editor-in-chief of Tehelka magazine, is facing charges under IPC sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 376 (rape) and 354-B (criminal assault with intent to disrobe a woman). On Tuesday, Tejpal moved the Bombay High Court after the court in Goa refused to drop the charges. The HC also refused to stay the framing of the charges against the journalist.

The HC said if the district court frames charges against Tejpal, the recording of evidence, which marks the beginning of the trial, should be deferred. Tejpal had sought a stay on framing of charges against him till the time the HC has decided his plea on dropping the charges. He has contended there was a lack of evidence against him in the case.

The court has barred the media from covering the proceedings. Tejpal is accused of sexually assaulting a junior colleague inside a lift at a five-star hotel in Goa during an event in 2013, triggering a massive public outrage.
