Journo's mother files police complaint against Tejpal's family member

November 27, 2013 00:04 IST

The mother of the young woman journalist, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Tarun Tejpal, on Tuesday filed a complaint with the Delhi police against an immediate family member of the Tehelka editor alleging "intimidation" over the case.

Delhi police sources said the mother of the journalist came to Pandav Nagar police station in East Delhi and filed a complaint against the member of the Tejpal family.

On Saturday, the victim had issued a statement saying she and her family were being subjected to pressure and intimidation at an "intensely traumatic" time to "protect" Tejpal.

The police said they have forwarded the complaint to its legal department to decide how should it be handled. On Monday, the journalist had accused Tejpal and Managing Editor Shoma Chaudhary of a "cover-up" and resorting to "tactics of intimidation, character assassination and slander".
