The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) cyber crime wing has booked singer Meesha Shafi and eight others for launching a smear campaign against singer-actor Ali Zafar. The FIR against the suspects was filed for a non-cognisable offence on order of FIA special court. According to the FIR, the suspects were summoned multiple times to present their defence, failing which granted a cause of criminal proceedings against them.
Singer Ali Zafar has filed another petition in the Lahore sessions court seeking to have singer Meesha Shafi’s petition against him thrown out. In his petition, Zafar says Shafi filed a retaliatory defamation case against him, but the case against her is still being heard. He wants the court to order the hearings of her petition to be stopped. After hearing the arguments, the court reserved its verdict.
