US US journalist MJ Akbar, a former EU minister, has denied accusations of rape committed by a US journalist and claimed that Pallavi Gogoi had been "consensual" for several months, but "perhaps not the best comment " ended.

"Somewhere around 1994, Ms. Pallavi Gogoi and I had a consensual relationship over several months, which caused a conversation and later caused a war in our home life." This consensus link is over, perhaps not the best comment, "he said. Akbar is the news agency for ANI.

In one column of The Washington Post, Gogoi, National Director of National Public Radio (NPR) accused Akbar of raping her while working for two decades in Asia for India. He told the alleged sexual assault that he had been sent to Akbar after joining the newspaper at the age of 22.

Although he claimed that "many people who worked with me and both of us knew that they were willing to testify about the aforementioned and did not act at any stage of the behavior, thanks to Mrs Pallavi Gogoi, the impression that anybody is under it or in any way she works under violence. "

Mallika, Akbar's wife, also came to support her husband and admitted that she was "unhappy and stripped" in her home with her relationship with Akbar Gogoi. He said he was silent, while the "self" campaign "got rid of" her husband and further clarified his awareness of Gogoi and Akbar's "involvement" with Gogoi's calls and public presence in his presence.

Recalling an Asian era in his home, Mallika said the place was crowded with young journalists, and they looked at each other as "mortificated and painful" while dancing closely. Additionally, Akbar's wife said that she was confronted with him who decided to rank his family.

Mallika, referring to Gogoi, said: "The relationship was strangled, it caused suffering and hurt my entire family."

Akbar's lawyer, Sandeep Kapur, refused Gogoi's assertions that "they are [incidents and allegations] false and expressly denied. "The denial is noted by the editor in The Washington Post column.

Gogoi's allegations occurred two days after Akbar appeared in court and filed evidence against journalist Priya Ramani, the first woman who opposed allegations of sexual harassment. Akbar stated that Ramani's alleged "defamatory articles" are about "figurative figuration" and are intended to be "fraudulent".

Last month, Akbar resigned from EU ministers' council of ministers of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after several women came out with reports of alleged sexual assault following the gruesome #MeToo campaign in India.
