The appeal was rejected on the basis of not being presented at the appropriate forum.
It is pertinent to mention that in April 2018, singer Meesha Shafi , in a post shared on micro-blogging site Twitter, claimed that she had been subjected to sexual harassment “of a physical nature” by Ali Zafar on multiple occasions.
Using the #MeToo hashtag, Shafi link her incident with an international movement against sexual harassment and assault.
