The young Tehelka journalist who has alleged sexual assault by Tehelka Editor-in-Chief Tarun Tejpal has issued the following statement:

On the night of 22nd of November 2013, a member of Mr. Tejpal’s immediate family came to my mother’s house in New Delhi, asking my mother to protect Mr. Tejpal and demanded to know

  1. who I was seeking legal help from and
  2. what I “wanted” as the result of my complaint of sexual molestation by Mr. Tejpal, that was made to the Tehelka management earlier this week.

This visit has placed tremendous emotional pressure on my family and I at an intensely traumatic time. I fear this may be the beginning of a period of further intimidation and harassment.

I call upon all persons connected to Mr. Tejpal and his associates to refrain from approaching me or my family members.”
