New Delhi, Nov 2 (IBNS) : In yet another charge of sexual predatory, a US-based journalist has accused former minister M J Akbar of raping her in 1994 while she was working as the Op-Ed page editor of The Asian Age.

In an article written for The Washington Post, Pallavi Gogoi  said that prior to the incident, Akbar had attempted to kiss her and on another occasion “scratched” her face when she tried to fight him off.

Gogoi’s allegations come two days after Akbar appeared in court to record evidence in his defamation suit against journalist Priya Ramani, the first woman to level sexual harassment allegations against him. Akbar stated that Ramani’s alleged “defamatory articles” on him were a “figment of imagination” and intended to “malign” his reputation.

Akbar  resigned from his post in the ministry on October 17 following a spate of allegations of sexual misconduct by ten other women after Ramani opened the Pandora's box.
