A Lahore’s Session Court asked Meesha Shafi’s counsel for a formal request to record a video statement in a defamation case filed by singer Ali Zafar.
An Additional session judge, Azhar Iqbal Ranjha conducted a hearing in a defamation case against Meesha. The singer’s mother Saba Hameed and Iffat Omar recorded their statement in front of the judge.
According to ARY News, Saba requested the court to accept her daughter’s video statement as she resides in Canada and can’t travel to Pakistan right now due to widely spread COVID-19.
In reply, Ali’s lawyer opposed the request and told the court that Meesha recently toured twice for music programs in Pakistan when COVID-19 was at its peak.
Following the verdict from both the parties, Additional District & Sessions Judge asked the defendant’s counsel to submit a formal application to the effect and the court would decide the same as per the law. The hearing was adjourned till March 20 and the court summoned two more witnesses of Meesha including make-up artist Leena Ghani and Farhan Ali in next hearing.
It must be noted here that Meesha, on April 19, 2018, Meesha accused Ali of harassing her during a project. The singer filed an FIR against Teefa In Trouble actor. In November 2018, Ali rejected all the allegations and claimed that a number of fake accounts are involved in running the #MeToo campaign against him on different social platforms.
