A Lahore sessions court was requested by the high court on Monday to wrap up the Ali Zafar-Meesha Shafi case in three months.
Lahore High Court judge Justice Masood Jahangir, taking up a request documented by artist, model and performing artist Meesha Shafi, put aside the lower court’s prior request to choose the case by April 15.
Shafi in her request contended that the sessions court request to choose the case in about fourteen days was in inconsistency with ground substances and looked for more opportunity to create observers to support her for the situation against Zafar, who she claims explicitly annoyed her and others on various events.
Following the charges a year ago, Zafar recorded a Rs1 billion criticism suit against Shafi.

Lewd behavior claims
In April, a year ago, Shafi on Twitter asserted that kindred artist and performing artist Zafar had explicitly badgering her on numerous events.
“I have been oppressed, over and over, to inappropriate behavior of a physical sort on account of an associate from my industry: Ali Zafar. These occurrences did not occur when I was youthful, or simply entering the business.
“This transpired in spite of the way that I am an enabled, achieved lady who is known for talking her psyche! This transpired as a mother of two youngsters,” she had asserted.
Hours after Shafi’s tweets, Zafar discharged an announcement completely denying “all cases of badgering held up against me by Shafi”.
He at that point recorded a slander argument against Shafi for harms worth Rs1 billion in June 2018.
Shafi in a reaction to the appeal in Oct 2018 expressed that Zafar had hassled her on multiple events. “Ali Zafar badgering [me] at a private studio and family works,” she said.
She expressed that she had been “constrained” to make a move against Zafar as a result of the badgering episodes, including that Zafar had hassled a few female specialists other than herself.
“I will likewise give proof [of the allegations] when the court requests it,” Shafi had said.
