Editor’s Guild suspends memberships of MJ Akbar, Tarun Tejpal

The Editors Guild of India on December 12 suspended the memberships of former Union minister M J Akbar and ex-Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal over allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Guild had sought the views of its Executive Committee (EC) on what action should be taken against Akbar, a dormant member at present and one of its past presidents, Tejpal and senior journalist Gautam Adhikari “in light of sexual misconduct allegations levelled against them”, a statement said.

A majority of the EC members suggested that Akbar and Tejpal’s memberships be suspended. Office-bearers of the Guild discussed the EC’s comments and concurred with the view that Akbar and Tejpal should be suspended from the Guild, it said.

The Guild decided it would seek Adhikari’s response before deciding on his membership.
