Sexual Assault: Tejpal can't enter Delhi even if he gets bail

Tarun Tejpal
New Delhi, April 21: It will not be an easy path for Tarun Tejpal even if he gets bail in the infamous sexual assault case. The former editor of Tehelka magazine might not be able to enter Delhi if court grants him bail in future.

Earlier Tejpal was denied bail when the defense feared that he might influence witnesses and the victim if he was allowed bail. Assuring the Supreme Court on Monday, April 21, senior advocate Harish Salve appearing for Tejpal, told the apex court that if granted bail the former Tehelka editor will not come to Delhi where the complainant and witnesses stay.

However, the Supreme Court rejected Tejpal plea of interim bail, hence, he will remain in jail in Goa. The court also sent a notice to Goa government regarding Tejpal's bail plea. Police have been asked to file its reply within four weeks.

50-year-old Tejpal was arrested following sexual assault allegations by one of his former Tehelka colleague in a hotel in Goa. Tejpal has been chargesheeted for allegedly raping, sexually harassing and outraging the modesty of a junior colleague.
