As Meesha failed to submit the reply by today as earlier ordered by the court, Additional Sessions Judge Shehzad Ahmed directed that the court’s notice seeking her reply be posted outside her residence.
The singer has been given till August 13 to submit her reply in the case.
During the hearing, Ali told court, “Meesha levelled false allegations of harassment against me for publicity.”
“My name has been tainted worldwide owing to her false allegations,” the singer-cum-actor added.
The Teefa in Trouble actor further requested the court to direct Meesha to pay Rs1 billion in defamation.
During an earlier hearing on June 25, the sessions court had asked Meesha to submit a reply by July 5.
Last month, Ali submitted a defamation suit to a district court against Meesha.
In April this year, Meesha claimed Ali sexually harassed her despite her being the established lady that she is today.
Ali Zafar had sworn to take the matter to court. The suit, claiming damages of Rs1 billion, was filed under the Defamation Ordinance 2002.
