"We are in the process of writing to Goa Police to file an FIR against him (Tejpal). We have gone through the CCTV footage of the hotel and on its basis as well as Tejpal's confession, police need to act as per law," NCW member Shamina Shafiq told Times Now channel.
Tejpal allegedly sexually assaulted a colleague in a Goa hotel where Tehelka had organised its Think fest early this month. The incident, which came to light Wednesday night, led to Tejpal stepping down from his post for six months.
However, Shafiq said that Tejpal's confession and apology won't be enough and that action has to be taken.
"Tejpal accepting it and saying that he is stepping down does not mean that action will not be taken. Acton has to be taken as per the law," she said.
"We are concerned about what took Tehelka so long to act," she added.
