The Delhi High Court has dismissed the plea filed by actor Juhi Chawla against implementation of 5G in India. 

Dismissing the petition, the Delhi High Court said: “It appears that the suit was for publicity.” 

The Court further slapped a fine of Rs 20 lakh on Juhi Chawla. 

“The suit is dismissed. Plaintiffs abused the process of law. Costs of Rs 20 lakh is imposed on plaintiffs,” the court said. 

The Court said Juhi Chawla circulated the link of the hearing on social media, which created disruption thrice.  

“Delhi Police shall identify the persons and take action against those who created a disruption,” the court added. 

On Wednesday, the High Court’s virtual hearing was repeatedly interrupted by fans who logged on and sang hits from Juhi Chawla’s movies, infuriating the judge.

The lawsuit filed by Juhi Chawla, Veeresh Malik and Teena Vachani said if 5G gets implemented in India, it would cause damage to the environment. 

“No person, animal, bird, insect and plant on earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to radiation 10x to 100x times greater than what exists today,” the petion filed by Juhi Chawla read.
