On Thursday, the lawyer of Ali Zafar has disclosed that the singer is receiving life threats and is being pressurized to withdraw the case against singer Meesha Shafi.
Ali Zafar’s lawyer Muhammad Omar Tariq said that his client was receiving death threats to withdraw the case against singer Meesha Shafi.
“Ali Zafar, Meesha Shafi, and Leena Ghani used to study in the same college and it was it was Meesha Shafi who introduced Leena Ghani in fashion industry career and when Ali Zafar was accused, Leena came out in support of Meesha Shafi,” he told to a local news channel.
The Teefa in Trouble actor’s lawyer further told that Ali Zafar was pressurized to surrender to the accused party and if he did not do it, many people especially women will stand against him.
He further revealed that Leena Ghani was found guilty in the Meesha Shafi case by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and submitted its report to the court.
It should be mentioned here that Ghani went to the Sindh High Court yesterday (13th January) against Zafar claiming Rs500 million in compensation for running a defamation campaign against her.
Meesha Shafi was found guilty of running a defamation campaign against leading singer Ali Zafar by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on 16th December 2020.
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.’
The Supreme Court had approved leave in Meesha Shafi’s harassment case appeal for hearing against Lahore High Court’s decision on 11th January. The SC adjourned the case for an infinite period.
As per the details, the Apex Court had admitted Meesha’s appeal against the Lahore High Court ruling for a preliminary hearing.
The Supreme Court ordered a suo-moto notice on the definition of “sexual harassment”. The Court had issued notice to singer Ali Zafar and Advocate General Punjab.
