Ali Zafar has filed a defamation case against Meesha Shafi, who accused him of sexually harassing him on more than once occasion, last year.
Calling it a ‘pre-planned conspiracy, a report in The Express Tribune claimed that Zafar had filed an application with the cyber crime agency and said that a deliberate attempt was being made to malign him by sharing pictures and videos on social media platforms.
The statements will be recorded next week. Deputy Director of the cyber crime wing Lahore confirmed to The Express Tribune that Zafar had written an application. He said that all actions in accordance with the law would be taken.
Ali Zafar claimed a few months ago that fake social media accounts were deliberately maligning him.
Ali Zafar accused Nighat Dad and Meesha Shafi of being behind the fake accounts to defame and malign him.
