Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Monday granted bail to journalist Priya Ramani in the defamation case filed by former Union Minister MJ Akbar over the #MeToo allegations against him.
Ramani was granted bail on a personal bail bond of Rs 10,000. The court has scheduled the next hearing in the matter on March 8.
Addressing the media persons post-hearing, Ramani said that the truth is in her defence.
Ramani was the first woman to accuse Akbar of sexual harassment during the #MeToo movement. After that multiple women came out with accounts of alleged sexual harassment by Akbar when he was a journalist.
