Chargesheet against Tejpal on Feb 17

Panaji, February 15
Goa Police will file chargesheet on Monday against Tehelka founder-editor Tarun Tejpal who was accused of sexually assaulting his woman colleague last year. The chargesheet would be filed before Principal Additional Sessions court judge Anuja Prabhudesai, sources said today.

Tejpal (50) has been accused of raping the woman in a lift at a star hotel near here during Tehelka's ThinkFest in November 2013.

The journalist was arrested by the Crime Branch of Goa police on November 30 after his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by a local court.

Tejpal is currently in judicial custody at the Sada sub-jail here. When contacted, a senior police official refused to divulge details of the chargesheet.

Tejpal had been booked under sections 354-A (sexual harassment, physical contact, advances involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures or any other unwelcome physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of sexual nature), 376 (rape), 376(2)(k) (rape by a person of a woman in his custody taking advantage of his official position), 341 (wrongful restraint) and 342 (wrongful confinement) of the Indian Penal Code.
