A former female employee has accused Tarun Tejpal of sexually assaulting her in November, shortly after the 50-year-old reportedly met with the "Goodfellas" star, and law enforcement officials want 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."
