LAHORE: A witness presented by singer Ali Zafar’s legal team during a hearing on Tuesday claimed he had worked with the alleged harasser for eight years but did not see him harass anyone ever.
The hearing was the latest in a defamation case filed by Zafar in response to singer-actress Meesha Shafi’s allegation of sexual harassment against him. It was presided by Justice Amjad Ali Shah, the additional session judge in Lahore, in the Session Court.
Sarfaraz was one of the two witnesses alongside Taha presented in the court to record their statements. The former is a former manager of Zafar while the latter the current one.
Sarfaraz asserted that he did not ever see Zafar harass anyone during the entire eight-year period he had worked with him.
Meesha Shafi, he said, had made baseless allegations against Zafar and those accusations have caused tremendous loss to Zafar.
No such incident of harassment from the singer-model occurred, he added, and confirming that he worked with Zafar as an event manager from 2008-2016.
It is noteworthy that in total, nine witnesses have recorded statements in the case to date.
Justice Amjad Ali Shah has called last witness to record his statement on June 18.
