The lawyer argued that the picture could not be considered evidence of sexual harassment because she was the one who uploaded it with the caption “tonight we party”. The female singer said she didn’t remember the picture and would have to see it to comment further and then, she was shown the photo.

Zafar’s lawyer further asked Meesha about her claim that the court never summoned her. The lawyer noted that the female singer made a ‘deliberate misrepresentation’ of a court order. Meesha Shafi responded that it was a ‘slip of tongue’.
