Aarey Protest: It will be devastating for Mumbaikars: Sanjay Nirupam

Mumbai Police on Saturday clamped prohibitory order and detained over 75 environmental activists when they protested the cutting of trees in the Aarey Colony to clear the way for building a car-shed for Mumbai Metro-3, officials said.

Among those whisked off was Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi, while Aditya Thackeray condemned the tree felling taken up since late Friday night.

"A project that should be executed with pride, the Metro-3, has to do it in the cover of the night, with shame, slyness and heavy cop cover. The project supported to get Mumbai clean air, is hacking down a forest with a leopard, rusty spotted cat and more," Aditya Thackeray tweeted.
