FIA – The Federal Investigation Agency has declared that Meesha Shafi and 8 others ‘Guilty’ of false allegations against Mr Ali Zafar. They were guilty of a vilification campaign on social media and a trial court has asked to start its proceedings against them. The cybercrime wing of FIA in Lahore submitted an interim challan before a special judge in the court with an FIR registered on the complaint filed by Mr Ali Zafar.
As per the interim challan, the Federal Investigation Agency – FIA explained, “During the course of 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 evidences. However, the complainant recorded his statement in favour of Hamna Raza to the extent of accepting her apology, thus she is not required in the investigation furthermore.”
The FIA explained that Ms Meesha Shafi posted defamatory and false allegations against Ali Zafar of sexual harrassment dated April 19th – 2018. Ms Shafi failed to produce/provide any witnesses before in the favour of her allegations, similarly, the other suspects also failed to produce any evidence in the favour of their allegations. As a consequence of this, an FIR was registered on courts order in September under section 20 (1) of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act 2016 and R/W 109-PPC.
Ali Zafar’s defamation suit against Ms Shafi is also pending in a sessions’ court. Let’s hope she will come back to Pakistan and face the court.
