Meesha Shafi was found guilty of running a defamation campaign against leading singer Ali Zafar by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday.
Before the court overlooking the FIR registered on Zafar’s complaint in April 2018 after Shafi accused him of sexual harassment, an interim challan against Shafi was submitted by FIA’s cybercrime Lahore wing.
As per FIA, Shafi was unable to provide witnesses before the court against Zafar, thereby, all her accusations against the Channo singer ‘defamatory’ and ‘false.’
Back in November 2018, Ali Zafar registered a complaint, for receiving threats from multiple social media accounts, with FIA’S cybercrime wing.
Many fake accounts were created as part of a smear campaign against the Rockstar singer. Ali Zafar further alleged that all fake accounts were linked to Shafi.
“A Twitter account @nehasaigol1, which posted 3,000 defamatory tweets against me and my family only in one year, [was] created 50 days before Meesha’s allegations of sexual harassment,” he had told FIA.
In December 2019, Shafi and her lawyer presented themselves before the FIA but were unable to present witnesses to support their claims against Ali Zafar.
