PANAJI: The former woman journalist with Tehelka, who has accused the magazine’s founder editor Tarun Tejpal of sexually assaulting her, has complained to Goa police that a “systematic and virulent campaign” has been launched to falsify facts and the truth in the case.
Deputy Inspector General of Police O P Mishra told PTI that the crime branch team in Mumbai will be arriving in Goa this evening with the content of the complaint, only after which further action would be decided.
“Yesterday, the victim got in touch with the investigating officer. She informed that she has received a mail which contains picture of her along with two others,” Mishra said, adding that the email also contains some slightly objectionable text related to the case.
“Our team, which was already in Mumbai, has got in touch with the victim and she has handed over the complaint to them,” the DIG said.
After going through the contents (of the complaint), necessary legal action would be decided, he added.
The email, sent by the victim to Goa police has complained of “systematic and virulent” campaign to falsify facts and the truth.
“I have remained silent against this campaign of slander and vilification, although it has caused me hurt and trauma because I have full faith in the legal process and respect its sanctity,” the victim has mentioned in her complaint.–PTI
