LHC orders Sessions Court to start proceedings against Ali Zafar
LAHORE – The Lahore High Court (LHC) Wednesday ordered Sessions Court to initiate proceedings on defamation suit filed by singer Messha Shafi against singer-actor Ali Zafar.
Justice Asim Hafeez passed the orders while allowing a petition filed by Meesha Shafi against stay order on his defamation suit in the Sessions Court. The petitioner’s counsel argued before the court that a Sessions Court was holding proceedings on a defamation suit filed by Ali Zafar against his client but it had stopped proceedings on the Rs2 billion defamation suit filed by his client against Ali Zafar.
He submitted that the orders passed by the Sessions Court were illegal and not sustainable in the eyes of the law.
