The Delhi High Court on Thursday admitted the appeal filed by former Union minister M J Akbar against a trial court order acquitting journalist Priya Ramani in a defamation case filed by him in connection with the sexual harassment allegations against him.
Akbar had filed the defamation case against Ramani in 2018 after she levelled sexual harassment allegations against him. The trial court had acquitted Ramani in the case on February 17 last year.
In the criminal defamation case against Ramani, Akbar had accused her of damaging his reputation by way of tweets and articles published in print and online media.
