LAHORE: Singer-cum-actor Ali Zafar on Saturday filed a petition against Meesha Shafi over submitting a fake affidavit in the civil court.
The petition stated there is a contradiction in the date mentioned on the affidavit and the account of the events shared in it.
“The events that Meesha promised and claimed took place afterwards,” the petition further said.
Meanwhile, Shafi’s counsel has request adjournment and didn’t question the witnesses presented by Zafar in the civil court.
The court has reserved its verdict over the adjournment.
Last year, Ali had submitted a defamation suit to a district court against peer Meesha, who had accused him of sexual harassment.
In April 2018, Meesha had taken to Twitter to publicly accuse Ali of physically harassing her on “more than one occasion”. “This happened to me despite the fact I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind!” her statement had read.
Ali, on the other hand, had “categorically” denied the allegations and threatened to take legal action against the actress. “I intend to take this through the courts of law, and to address this professionally and seriously rather than to lodge any accusations here,” the singer had said on Twitter.
