On Friday, the Delhi High Court dismissed the lawsuit filed by Juhi Chawla, regarding the establishment of 5G wireless network in the country.
The Bench of Justice JR Midha stated that the lawsuit was filed in order to gain publicity. He cited how Juhi Chawla circulated the link of the case’s hearing, on her social media accounts.
The court decided on fining Chawla, and the other plaintiffs, a whopping 20 lakh rupees.”Plaintiffs abused the process of law. Costs of Rs 20 lakh is imposed on plaintiffs: Court. It appears suit was for publicity. Juhi Chawla circulated link of the hearing on social media,” said the court.
The court also said that Juhi Chawla did not comply with the mandate under Section 80 of the Code of Civil Procedure, and also breached other mandates under the same code. The court also said that the plaint was not verified.
“There is no personal knowledge of averments. Plaint based on legal advise not maintainable,” the judgment said. Besides that, the Delhi High Court took note of the bizarre interruption during the case’s virtual hearing on June 2. A man suddenly appeared during the virtual hearing and started singing songs from some of Juhi Chawla’s old films. The man was somehow forcibly expelled from the meeting.
The court issued a contempt notice against the miscreant and has directed the Delhi police to act on the matter. After the court’s pronouncement, advocate Deepak Khosla, who was appearing for the actor, sought for a stay on the order. However, the court rejected his request and said that the matter was now over.
