Union Minister MJ Akbar today said the allegations of sexual harassment against him are "false and fabricated" and that he would take legal action in the matter. Sources said the minister would not resign. The government has nothing to do with the accusations against him and his stepping down may set a bad precedent, sources said. Mr Akbar, 67, was on an official tour in Nigeria when nearly a dozen women came out with detailed accounts of his alleged sexual misconduct as part of a thread on social media that has snowballed into a #MeToo movement in India.
