Senior Advocate Salman Khurshid appearing for Chawla, argued that this is a very peculiar situation and the petitioner had raised a genuine concern on the impact of 5G technology on human body.
Khurshid said that this technology has created a major concern in the United States where there is a debate going on about the problem that 5G is creating on aviation by interfering with aeroplane communication devices.
He said that the petitioner had also placed a judgment of the US Court and that this was a genuine case which got mired in technicalities.
“In all humility, on behalf of the petitioner, I am seeking your indulgence that ultimately the inadequacies of one us (counsel) being not able to represent should not cause a detriment to the cause. This is all I plead with Your Lordships… Some of the submissions may not have been plausible but they are not so implausible that it would lead to cost of ₹20 lakh being imposed. The plaint has been returned with a very clear education that education we have received. Therefore, if the cause were to be pursued, we would do it in a much better manner,” he said.
