SC orders early disposal of Meesha Shafi, Ali Zafar case

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday ordered the early disposal of the Meesha Shafi harassment case and stated that no unnecessary adjournments will be granted.

The two-member SC bench further instructed that the order of the high court, passed earlier in April, will be followed. It also ordered Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar’s counsels to cross-examine the witnesses on the same day.

The bench further noted that the affidavits of the witnesses should be filed within seven days and an advance copy should be sent to the respondent for preparation.

The witnesses will then be produced on the same day and the cross-examination will commence.

Shafi had challenged the LHC judgement in the apex court last month.

The LHC had set aside an earlier lower court directive that had mandated a conclusion to the defamation case by April 15 and instead gave the petitioners and respondents three months more.

In April 2018, Meesha had accused singer Ali Zafar of sexual harassment. While the singer took to the social media to make her voice heard, Zafar responded with legal advances, announcing he would be taking a professional route on the matter.
