SC rejects Tarun Tejpal's plea seeking in-camera proceedings in Bombay HC

SC rejects Tarun Tejpal's plea seeking in-camera proceedings in Bombay HC

New Delhi, Nov 28 (UNI) The Supreme Court on Monday rejected the appeal filed by veteran journalist Tarun Tejpal seeking in-camera proceedings in the Bombay High Court, which is hearing an appeal filed by the government of Goa, challenging his acquittal in the 2013 rape case.
A bench of the Supreme Court, headed by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dr Dhananjaya Yeshwant Chandrachud, did not agree with the submissions of senior advocates Kapil Sibal and Amit Desai, representing for Tejpal, that the proceedings be held in private to safeguard the reputation and privacy of the journalist.
"The statute does not say so. The in-camera proceedings are for vulnerable witnesses or informants and you are not vulnerable," the bench said.
