Leena noted that on March 19, 2018, well-known singer Meesha Shafi and actress Saba Qamar also levelled allegations of harassment against Ali Zafar. The petition stated that she also informed her sister and friends about the incident. She further said that Ali Zafar’s retweet on December 20, 2020 and his tweet on December 22 are based on lies and malicious intent.
