SC asks govt not cut more trees at Aarey Colony

Updated 07 Oct 2019 10:48 AM

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 activists intensified their protests after the Bombay High Court on Friday dismissed all petitions regarding the felling of the trees by the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MMRCL) in the green zone to construct a car-shed for the Metro-3 project.
