Updated 07 Oct 2019 01:54 PM

The Supreme Court on Monday prohibited cutting of any more trees in Mumbai's Aarey colony and directed the Maharashtra government to maintain status quo till October 21, the next date of hearing.

The matter will then be examined by a bench dealing with forest matter -- whether it is forested area or eco-sensitive zone.

The Supreme Court in its order on Monday said that no more trees should be cut in the colony till that date to facilitate the construction of a car shed for Mumbai Metro.

The top court also recorded an undertaking by the Devendra Fadnavis government assuring the same.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Ashok Bhushan further ordered the police to release all activists, who were detained till date for their protest preventing the axing of trees.
