Bombay High Court directions
The Bombay High Court paved the way for the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL) to construct a car shed for Mumbai Metro 3 by upholding the approval given by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s Tree Authority to cut 2,646 trees at the Aarey Milk Colony, despite widespread protests.
Hours after the HC order, trees inside the car depot were cut. There were widespread protests to oppose trees cut. The police even took to lathi charge and arrested many people for short duration.
