Last month, the Lahore High Court had set aside a lower court directive mandating a conclusion to the defamation case by 15th April, giving petitioners three months more. Meesha Shafi had then challenged LHC’s ruling in the apex court.

Last year, in April, Meesha Shafi accused singer Ali Zafar of sexual harassment. Meesha made the revelation on social media where Ali Zafar categorically denied each claim and went for legal proceedings against Meesha, filing a defamation suit.
