Tehelka: Journalist upset with magazine
New Delhi, Nov 21: The woman journalist who has brought allegations of sexual harassment by her boss Tarun Tejpal, the editor of Tehelka magazine, said she was very much disappointed with the magazine authorities' response. According to an NDTV report, the journalist said the claim that her colleagues in Tehelka were satisfied was not right for her testimony had not been publicly circulated within the magazine and only Tejpal's letter of atonement was.

Tejpal said on Wednesday evening that he was stepping down for six months as a move of atonement for what he claimed was a bad lapse of judgment and an awful misreading of the situation.

Shoma Chaudhury, the managing editor of Tehelka told the news channel that it was an internal matter and that the journalist was satisfied with the action taken.

Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women said Tejpal's decision to step down from the post of editorship was not adequate and said the judiciary must take up this matter.

The journalist alleged that she was assaulted by Tejpal at an event the magazine had organised in Goa in early November.
