Aarey Residents, Protesters Share Their Experience

Updated 07 Oct 2019 05:24 PM

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 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.
