Shoma resigned on November 28 from Tehelka following the sexual assault allegations against its Founder-Editor Tarun Tejpal.

She rejected the cover-up allegations against her saying, “While I accept that I could have done many things differently and in a more measured way, I reject the allegations of a cover-up because in no way could the first actions that were taken be deemed suppression of any kind. As for my feminist positions, I believe I acted in consonance with them by giving my colleague’s account precedence over everything else.”
