I don’t know Pallavi’s reasons for telling this lie: MJ Akbar’s wife on Pallavi’s allegations
FLASH: I don't know Pallavi's reasons for telling this lie, but a lie it is. I have been silent all this while as a ‘me too’ campaign has been unleashed against my husband, Mr. MJ Akbar. However, the Washington Post article by Pallavi Gogoi alleging that she was raped by him forces me to step in with what I know to be true. Over 20 yrs ago,Pallavi Gogoi caused unhappiness & discord in our home.I learned of her & my husband’s involvement through her calls & her public display of affection in my presence. In her flaunting the relationship,she caused anguish & hurt to my entire family. At an Asian Age party at our home, crowded with young journalists, I have watched with mortification and pain as they danced close. I had confronted my husband at the time and he decided to prioritize his family. Tushita Patel and Pallavi Gogoi were often at our home, happily drinking and dining with us. Neither carried the haunted look of victims of sexual assault. I don’t know Pallavi’s reasons for telling this lie but a lie it is: MJ Akbar's wife Mallika to ANI on journalist Pallavi Gogoi's allegations in the Washington Post against MJ Akbar.
