Juhi Chawla case: The actor has withdrawn her plea in connection to the 5G technology case from the Delhi High Court, reports said Thursday.

Chawla’s lawsuit against the rollout of fifth-generation wireless networks, citing the harm it would cause the environment by way of radiations, was dismissed in June by the HC. Justice JR Midha, presiding over the case, had ruled Chawla’s suit was a bid for “publicity” and imposed a penalty of Rs 20 lakh on her for “abusing” law.

The Ishq actor had thereafter moved the court for her suit to be deemed “rejected” instead of “dismissed.” Allowing for the withdrawal of this plea, Justice Jayant Nath acknowledged Chawla “wants to withdraw the application with liberty to avail remedy before the appellate court.”

Juhi Chawla Case: Here’s What Happened, A Quick Recap

Known for having a green thumb and speaking actively for environmental conservation, Chawla had in May this year filed a lawsuit against the implementation of 5G technology in the country, drawing attention to the lack of research in the field and its consequent adverse effects on nature, including on humans.

Her concerns demanded a deeper probe into 5G use to “declare whether or not the implementation of 5G in India would be safe…” More here.

Ahead of the virtual court hearing in the case, Chawla shared a link to the meet on her social media accounts asking netizens to join and support her cause. The move severely backfired, with multiple disruptions on the day of the hearing on June 2 caused by fans entering the courtroom to croon Chawla’s film songs mid-proceedings. An enraged Justice Midha had ordered for a contempt notice to be served after the mischief.

Following the case’s dismissal, Chawla on social media later said a “very important message got lost in the noise” and that their only appeal to the telecom authorities was to publish adequate research around 5G technology so public “fears are allayed.”
