Tehelka case : Goa court permits Tarun Tejpal to visit unwell mother
Panaji – A court in Goa today allowed Tehelka founder Tarun Tejpal, who is currently in jail on rape charge, to meet his ailing mother.
Mr Tejpal, 50, has been behind bars since November last year for allegedly raping a junior colleague at an event in Goa.
