TARUN TEJPAL

Deccan Chronicle - - WRAP-UP -

Long be­fore the #MeToo cam­paign be­gan, a woman jour­nal­ist at Te­helka had the courage to speak up against it’s pow­er­ful ed­i­tor. She ac­cused him of rape on Novem­ber 7, 2013. She al­leged that Tejpal as­saulted her in the el­e­va­tor of the Grand Hy­att in Panaji, where Te­helka held its an­nual Think Fest.

Sta­tus: Tejpal’s army of high-pro­file lawyers man­age to get the trial pro­ceed­ings stalled for five years by fil­ing all sorts of ap­pli­ca­tions. Last month, the Supreme Court again stayed the pro­ceed­ings in the trial court un­til Oc­to­ber 30.
