The Delhi High Court on Monday transferred to another bench, the hearing of a lawsuit filed by Bollywood actor Juhi Chawla against implementation of 5G technology in India stating that until and unless the technology is certified safe, its roll out should not be permitted.

The bench of Justice C. Harishankar on Monday recused to hear the matter due to a reason and the matter has been transferred to another bench of Delhi HC. The matter will now be heard on 2nd June.

Chawla, along with Veeresh Malik and Teena Vachani filed a case against Science & Engineering Research Board, & organisation, where they strenuously submitted that the people of India are not ‘guinea pigs’ whose health – rather, life – the Government of India can sell at a profit, claiming that 5G technology expose people and animal to RF radiation that is 10 to 100 times than it exists today. 

“The essence of the suit – which addresses the dire and palpable risks to the public at large which an indiscriminate and admittedly-untested roll-out of 5G cellular telecommunications technology entails – is that the State, on the principle that ‘prevention’ is better than ‘cure’, has an ongoing 24x7x365 duty to ensure the safety and health of its citizens, both the living as well as those yet to be born, which duty would extend to ensuring that products of a hazardous nature – or even a potentially hazardous nature – are not permitted to come into the economic mainstream till they are certified,” the lawsuit reads.

The lawsuit further stated, “ This suit will reveal a complete sell-out by the regulatory agencies who, statutorily, have been tasked to protect the health and life of the public, but whose actions reveal an utter derogation of their own statutory duty in order to advance private interests, this sell-out naturally being on account of extraneous considerations provided by private interests.”
