Shoma Chaudhury, managing editor of Tehelka, on 27 November 2013 announced her resignation from the Tehelka, an investigative magazine.
This resignation came in the wake of the sexual harassment case in which a young Tehelka reporter alleged that the magazine's editor in chief Tarun Tejpal had sexually assaulted her during an event the magazine's group conducted in Goa.
Shoma Chaudhury's resignation came after six other senior journalists quit the magazine after the alleged sexual assault came to light. Writers including Jay Mazoomdaar, Ayesha Siddiqa, Revati Laul and Rana Ayyub put in their papers following the incident.
Tehelka magazine's editor in chief Tarun Tejpal also stepped down as editor following allegations of sexual assault on 21 November 2013.
