Priya Ramani summoned as an accused in defamation case filed by former Union Minister MJ Akbar

M J Akbar has said that the allegations of sexual harassment made by against him by Priya Ramani are ‘false and fabricated’ and ‘malicious’.

Priya Ramani, who had accused M.J. Akbar of sexual harassment, has been summoned by the Patiala House Court as an accused in the defamation suit filed against her by the former Union Minister.

Six witnesses appeared before the Court to testify for the former union minister. All of them claimed that they were shocked and dismayed at the allegations levelled against Akbar and asserted that they had never heard of any such complaint against him. They vouched for Akbar’s credentials and professionalism as well. All these witnesses are said to have been associated with Akbar for many years.

Ramani responded on Twitter by saying that it was time to tell her side of the story.
