Mid-Day’s shameful whitewash of Tarun Tejpal

In a desperate move to whitewash the image of former Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal, Mid-Day in a column has dubbed sexual assault as ‘brouhaha’ and rape as a ‘grave error.’

Here is the article that appeared in Mid Day:


The article depicts Tejpal as a martyr who became the victim of media trial for committing a petty crime. Tejpal is currently out on bail in an alleged rape case. The column has disgracefully tried to show Tarun Tejpal as a celebrated editor and not someone who is accused of raping her daughter’s friend during ThinkFest.
