FIA Finds Meesha Shafi Guilty for Running Vilification Drive against Ali Zafar
The challan is submitted before the court of a special judge central in the FIR registered on the complaint filed by Mr. Zafar.
In the interim challan, the FIA said:
“During investigation so far Meera Shafi alias Meesha Shafi, Iffat Omar, Maham Javaid, Leena Ghani, Haseemus Zaman, Fariha Ayub, Syed Faizan Raza, Humna Raza, and Ali Gul Pir have been found guilty in this case as per available oral and documentary pieces of evidence. However, the complainant recorded his statement in favor of Hamna Raza to the extent of accepting her apology, thus she is not required in the investigation furthermore.”
The FIA further propagates
“Ms. Shafi posted defamatory and false allegations of sexual harassment against Ali Zafar on April 19, 2018, but she failed to produce any witnesses before it in favour of her allegations. The other suspects also failed to provide evidence in favor of the direct allegations posted by them on social media. Resultantly, an FIR was registered on the court’s order in September last against them under section 20 (1) of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act 2016 and R/W 109-PPC.”
Ali Zafar commenced his legal journey in Nov 2018 to defend his stance
In November 2018, Ali Zafar had filed a complaint with the FIA cyber-crime wing, alleging that many social media accounts were posting “threats and defamatory material” against him. He provided details of some Twitter and Facebook accounts to support his claim.
Mr. Zafar states,
“I had attached the pictures Ms. Shafi that she had uploaded on her social media accounts but ‘discretely deleted just before making the allegation’. I had also submitted a ‘threat message’ sent to my manager on Instagram in Feb 2018.”
“A Twitter account @nehasaigol1, which posted 3,000 defamatory tweets against me and my family only in one year, [was] created 50 days before Meesha’s allegations of sexual harassment,” the singer-actor told the FIA with documentary ‘evidence’.
The FIA promulgates its proceedings
“Ms. Shafi had appeared before the FIA cyber-crime wing with her team of lawyers in December 2019, but she failed to produce any witness in favor of her allegations (of sexual harassment) against Mr. Zafar.”
Zafar’s defamation suit against Ms. Shafi is also pending in a sessions’ court.
