Judicial Magistrate Yousuf Abdul Rehman has rejected the plea of Iffat Omar’s exemption from appearance and has issued arrest warrants. The court has also issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Ali Gul Pir.
Earlier singer Ali Zafar filed for a defamation case against Iffat Omar and Ali Gul Pir in context of Meesha Shafi’s harassment allegations.
The Dour diva has opened up on the matter:
The court has also summoned singer Meesha Shafi on the next hearing and dismissed the pleas of co-accused Leena Ghani, Fariha Ayub, Faizan Raza and Haseemuz Zaman for permanent exemption from appearance. The court adjourned the case till October 6.
According to the FIA, Meesha Shafi and Iffat Omar made allegations of sexual harassment against the Madhubala singer on Twitter.
The Federal Investigation Agency last year registered the case on the complaint of Zafar. He had accused Meesha Shafi, Leena Ghani, Iffat Omer, Fariha Ayub, Faizan Raza, Haseemuz Zaman, Ali Gul Pir and Maham Javed of running a coordinated vilification campaign against him on social media.
