Indian police are seeking information from actor Robert De Niro in a sexual assault case against the founding editor of Indian magazine Tehelka. A former female employee has accused Tarun Tejpal of sexually assaulting her in November (13), shortly after the 50 year old reportedly met with the Goodfellas star, and law enforcement officials are keen to hear from De Niro in the hope that the memory of his get together with the publishing tycoon will help them with their investigation. They have reportedly sent a questionnaire to De Niro, but the actor has yet to respond. A crime branch official says, "We are still waiting for the response despite sending him the reminder." Police will reportedly file a charge sheet in the case at the end of this month (Jan14). Tejpal is currently being held in jail in Sada.
