Aarey Protest: Special SC Hearing At 10 a.m Over Tree-Cutting

Updated 07 Oct 2019 07:39 AM

Amid all the protests against the Maharashtra government’s decision to fell trees in Mumbai’s Aarey colony, the Supreme Court has set up a special bench hearing on Monday over the issue. The hearing will be held at 10 a.m.

The apex court took the decision based on a letter on Sunday by Rishav Ranjan with regard to "felling of trees in Aarey forest" in Maharashtra, which has been registered as a Public Interest Litigation.
 


After a huge ruckus by environmentalists protesting tree cutting inside the Aarey Colony, the Mumbai Police on Saturday arrested 29 activists, including six women. The protests were to oppose the felling of around 2,646 trees and the activists claimed that more than 1,000 trees have already been cut down.

The political drama escalated after hundreds of people gathered to protest in Aarey colony in suburban Mumbai after they were informed that trees were being axed by authorities late Friday night. The protests continued during the wee hours of Saturday in an attempt to stop authorities.
