Tejpal’s lawyer refuses to comment on police version
Tejpal’s lawyer calls the ‘consensual comment’ as rumor
Panaji: A lawyer for Tehelka founder editor Tarun Tejpal, accused of sexually assaulting a woman colleague, has refused to comment on the police version that he has confessed to have committed the act while claiming it as “consensual”.
“There are rumors about him confessing. We have no idea about it. The investigating officer takes statement under Section 161 of CrPC and we have no access to the statement,” said a lawyer, who requested anonymity.
The remand application of Tejpal will come up before the Session’s court tomorrow. He said that as a defense lawyer, he will come in the picture only after there is a charge sheet.
The lawyer said that the decision on filing a bail application would be taken only after knowing the stand of the investigating agency tomorrow.
