Panaji: Goa Crime Branch has received response from Hollywood actor Robert de Niro in connection with the rape case against Tehelka editor Tarun Tejpal.

“Robert de Niro has replied to the questionnaire forwarded to him by the Crime Branch through his attorney,” Deputy Inspector General of Police O P Mishra said. The actor’s attorneys Harvey & Hackett based at New York in the reply sent recently have confirmed the presence of the woman (who has accused the Tehelka editor of rape) and Tejpal for the ThinkFest event, Mishra said, refusing to divulge the details of the reply. The crime branch had sent a formal questionnaire to the Hollywood actor in January this year.
