Meanwhile, Tejpal left for Goa where police are expected to grill him in connection with the sexual assault case. Tejpal earlier had claimed that legal case against him is nothing but a political conspiracy.
Tejpal, a well-known journalist, claimed that BJP has been taking revenges as he along with his team in Tehelka had exposed several top leaders of the party. BJP held several protests against Tejpal and his associates ever since the shocking allegation of molestation has been hurled against him.
