Goa Police on Friday filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Tarun Tejpal for sexually assaulting a junior colleague at a five star resort in the state last week.

Meanwhile, the BJP leader Arun Jaitley said that some participants in television debates had provided Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal with an escape route after allegations of sexual assault were made against him by a colleague.

Jaitley said suggestions that the victim had the choice of refraining from pursuing a criminal investigation were akin to offering the offender an escape route.

After the email by the woman journalist of his magazine alleging sexual assault was made public, Tejpal had announced on Wednesday night that he was "recusing" from his job for six months.
