Delhi court on Monday granted bail to journalist Priya Ramani in a defamation case filed by former Union minister M J Akbar. The next date of hearing is on April 10.

“The next date when they will frame the charges against me is April 10. After that, it will be my turn to tell my story. The truth is my defence,” ANI quoted Ramani as saying.
