Meesha's plea dismissed.

LAHORE -- A sessions court on Monday dismissed petitions of singer Meesha Shafi and another challenging an order of a judicial magistrate summoning them through submission of bail bonds in a criminal case registered under the cybercrime law by actor-singer Ali Zafar.

The magistrate had summoned Ms Shafi and Maham Javed with a direction to submit bail bonds of Rs100,000 each after they failed to join the proceedings before the trial court.

Both challenged the order before the sessions court for being illegal and not warranted by law.

Dismissing the petitions, Additional District and Sessions Judge Rai Muhammad Yasin Shaheen observed that the petitioners were named in the FIR and they joined the investigation before the investigating officer but did not appear before the trial court.

The judge observed that the trial court issued due process for procuring the attendance of the petitioners but they did not surrender before it.

The judge further noted that the record showed that neither the petitioners appeared before the trial court nor were they indicted.
