New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday rejected journalist Tarun Tejpal's plea seeking to set aside the charges of sexual assault framed against him by a trial court.

The top court also ordered to conclude trial in the case within six months.

Tejpal had moved the top court challenging the trial court order which had framed the charges dealing with rape and wrongful confinement against him.

He has pleaded not guilty and claimed innocence.

A former junior woman colleague had accused Tejpal of rape during the ThinkFest, a conference organised by the Tehelka founder in Goa in 2013.
