New Delhi, May 15: The Supreme Court on Friday gave one more year time to the Goa judge holding trial of Tehelka’s founding editor Tarun Tejpal for allegedly sexual assaulting his junior woman colleague in a five star hotel in Goa in November 2013. A bench of Chief Justice H.L.Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra granted one more year time on a letter from the trial court judge - district judge 2 and additiol sessions judge, Mapusa - seeking extension of time. While granting bail to Tejpal July 1, 2014, the apex court had directed the lower court to complete the trial in eight month time and asked Tejpal to remain present on all days and not seek unnecessary adjournments.
