Meesha Shafi wants the judge hearing the defamation case filed against her by Ali Zafar to be changed.
The singer filed a petition on Saturday seeking to have a different judge assigned to the case. She has accused Additional Sessions Judge Shakeel Ahmed of partiality.
He has been hearing the case filed against Shafi by Zafar for six months.
Zafar filed a defamation suit against Shafi after she accused him of sexual harassment. He denied the allegations and wants her to pay restitution for the damage to his reputation and leveling false allegations against him.
Recently, Shafi’s legal team sent Zafar a defamation notice demanding a public apology and Rs2 billion in damages.
