#MeToo movement: Delhi court acquits journalist Priya Ramani in MJ Akbar defamation case

A Delhi court acquitted Indian journalist Priya Ramani on Wednesday of defamation charges filed by a former minister after Ramani accused him of sexual harassment in 2018. 

The court Wednesday concluded that “even a man of social status can be a sexual harasser.” 

In 2018, Ramani wrote a story for Vogue India titled “To the Harvey Weinsteins of the World” without naming then-junior Foreign Minister M.J. Akbar. After its publication, dozens of women came forward to say they had been harassed by the politician. Later, Ramani retweeted the article admitting that it was about him. 

Akbar dismissed the allegations as “baseless and fabricated,” filing a defamation suit against Ramani and resigning from his post two days later.

“My victory will empower more women to speak up. This will make powerful men think twice before they drag other people to courts,” Ramani told reporters after the decision Wednesday.

“Go Priya. You fought for each one of us, you brave woman,” Rana Ayyub, an independent journalist based in Mumbai, wrote on Twitter.
