Delhi High Court today has rejected actress Juhi Chawla’s petition against the installation of 5G technology in India. In its order, the court stated that “it appears that the suit was filed for publicity” and issued a penalty of Rs. 20 lakh.
While issuing the judgments, the bench of Justice JR Midha stated that the petitioners, actor-environmentalist Juhi Chawla and two other abused the legal process and levied a Rs.20 lakh penalty on them. The court stated that the action looked to be brought for publicity purposes, highlighting how the petitioners had misused the legal process by disseminating the hearing’s web link on social media networks, which led to the description of proceedings three times.
Delhi police was ordered by the court to identify those who caused disruption during the hearing and to take action against them.
On Wednesday, an unidentified man began singing popular songs of actress Juhi Chawla during the virtual hearing of the star’s case and did not stop until he was muted and removed from the online courtroom. The court has also ordered the Delhi police to identify and take action against him.
