Panaji : After years of delay, former Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal will finally face trial from February in an alleged rape case involving a now former junior colleague, a Goa court said on Tuesday.

Additional District and Sessions judge Vijaya Pol ruled that the in-camera trial will commence on February 26 and hearings will continue for four days on the trot during which the victim will depose and will be examined, reports IANS.

“If a further date is required then the court will consider. We are quite confident that there is no case,” Tejpal’s advocate Pramod Dubey told reporters outside the Court complex in Mapusa, located 10 km from Panaji.
