New Delhi, June 4: The Delhi High Court today dismissed the petition of actor Juhi Chawla, against the rollout of 5G in the country and imposed fine of Rs 20 lakh for abusing the process of law.
The Court made very stern remarks and stated that the lawsuit was apparently “for publicity”.
“The suit is dismissed. Plaintiffs abused the process of law. Costs of ₹ 20 lakh is imposed on plaintiffs,” the court said directing Juhi Chawla and others to deposit court fees.
Along with that, the court also ordered action against people who interrupted a virtual hearing on Wednesday using a link the actor had shared on social media and sang songs from her films.
“Delhi Police shall identify the persons and take action against those who created a disruption,” the court added.
The Court snapped out at Juhi Chawla’s lawyer Deepak Khosla by saying “The matter is over and Counsel should know his limits,” when he asked for the order to be put on hold, arguing that the costs were without any legal basis,
On Wednesday, the High Court’s virtual hearing was repeatedly interrupted by fans that logged on and sang hits from Juhi Chawla’s movies, infuriating the judge.
Juhi, in her plea, had sought a direction to the authorities to certify to the public at large that how 5G technology is safe to humans, animals, and every type of living organism, flora, and fauna.
