Seven people submitted on Tuesday their affidavits in Lahore court against singer Meesha Shafi in a defamation case.
All witnesses have rejected Shafi’s claims of sexual harassment. They said that no harassment incident was reported when they were rehearsing in a studio.
Shafi has falsely accused Zafar and there is no truth to her claims, they said in their statements.
Additional Sessions Judge Amjad Ali was hearing the case. The court summoned Shafi’s lawyer at the next hearing to cross-examine the witnesses. The hearing will be held on May 29, Wednesday.
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.
