India's leading female news presenter Barkha Dutt has won praise for revealing that she was sexually abused as a child.

Ms Dutt said she had been abused by a "distant older relative" in her book titled "This Unquiet Land".

"Worse still, as a child unable to process the magnitude of what had happened - I was the one who felt grotesque and dirty," the book says.

Child sexual abuse is a taboo topic in India, and often covered up.

An extract of the book has been published on the website of the NDTV news channel, where Ms Dutt is a presenter.

Her revelations have won her praise, with many pointing out the importance of highlighting similar incidents.
