Tejpal case: woman deposes before Magistrate in Goa

By The Assam Tribune

Panaji, Nov 27 (IANS): The young journalist who has accused Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal of sexually assaulting her appeared before a Judicial Magistrate in Goa to depose.

Police sources said the woman was secretly flown to Goa and taken to a trial court complex in Panaji, where her statement was recorded before a Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) in 'B' Court under Section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

Goa CM wants Tejpal case fast-tracked: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar wants the sexual assault case against Tehelka editor-in-chief to be fast-tracked. He also rejected Tarun Tejpal's claim that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was pressuring police to act against him.

"Such high profile cases should not be dragged on. They are basically a shocker to public faith," Parrikar said, suggesting that fast tracking the case was a possibility.

"I don't come under pressure from anyone. My only instruction to them (police) is to not get pressurized due to the position of the accused. Do it without fear and favour. That's all," Parrikar said.

Tejpal in his anticipatory bail application filed before the Delhi High Court on Tuesday had said that Tehelka's crusading journalism and his opposing ideology was the reason why the BJP was using police to nail him.

Parrikar also said that the charge made against him about taking a keen interest in the Tejpal case and seeking hourly briefings from police was false. "If anything like that can ever be proved, I will quit politics. I believe that law should be followed in letter and principle," Parrikar said.
