The Tarun Tejpal sexual assault case has acquired even more sinister character with the woman complaining to police that there is a threat perception with a relative of Tehelka founder coming to her mother's house.

According to a statement by the alleged Tehelka victim circulated to TV channels, a member of Tarun Tejpal's immediate family came to her mother's house in New Delhi and asked her (mother) to "protect Tarun Tejpal and demanded to know who I was seeking legal help from and what I wanted as the result of my complaint of sexual molestation by Tarun Tejpal".

"This visit has placed tremendous emotional pressure on my family and I at an intensely traumatic time. I fear this may be the beginning of a period of further intimidation and harassment", said the statement adding "I call upon all persons connected to Tarun Tejpal and his associates to refrain from approaching me or my family members.
