Priya Ramani Ruled 'Not Guilty' Against Akbar's Defamation Lawsuit

Delhi High Court on February 17 acquitted journalist Priya Ramani and held her 'not guilty' against a defamation case filed by journalist-politician MJ Akbar. Considered a landmark judgement, the court ruled, "The right of reputation cannot be protected at the cost of right to dignity". The case dates back to 2018 when Ramani was booked for defamation after accusing her former boss Akbar of sexual harassment during the #MeToo movement.
