Tehelka denies using women staff as prostitutes

Press Trust of India

Posted: Aug 25, 2001 at 2048 hrs IST

Tehelka web portal on Saturday termed as "absolutely baseless" reports suggesting that the portal had used its own women staff as prostitutes in the sting operation on corruption in the arms deals.

In a statement, editor-in-chief of Tehelka Tarun Tejpal said, "Absolutely no woman staffer of Tehelka participated in any way whatsoever with the sting involving the arranging of female companionship for the army officers. All reports in this regard are untrue and a misrepresentation," he said.

Tejpal denied that the clarification was being issued after the woman staff protested against news reports quoted to a portal's journalist that its women staff were made to act as prostitutes.
