MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian minister M.J. Akbar called the multiple allegations of sexual assault against him "wild and baseless" on Sunday, and said he plans to take legal action against the women who have made the accusations, according to a report from Reuters partner ANI.

At least ten women have so far gone public in the past week with accounts of having faced inappropriate behaviour and sexual harassment at the hands of Akbar, a former journalist who is now minister of state for external affairs in the Indian government.
