Lahore: Another woman has filed a lawsuit against singer Ali Zafar, who is already in legal battle with Messhar Shafi over harassment allegations, leveling the similar accusations and demanding a compensation amount of Rs500 million. Leena Ghani, who is an artist by profession, has moved the Sindh High Court (SHC) against Ali Zafar. The court has issued notices to the singer for January 25.

The plaintiff claimed that Ali Zafar had first harassed her in 2014 during a fashion show in London, adding that the same year the Teefa in Trouble actor spoke to her in indecent ways.

She went on to say that Zafar had also offered her work in a big firm in July 2014 but she denied it.

In the petition, she said that singer Meesha and actor Saba Qamar had also accused Ali Zafar of harassment.

The petitioner has also distanced herself from Meesha Shafi.

After hearing the arguments, the SHC has issued notices to Ali Zafar through a sessions judge in Lahore.
