Mumbai Aarey Colony protests Highlights |‘They made corpses of lungs of Mumbai’: Cong slams tree felling at Aarey

Hindustan Times, New Delhi | By HT Correspondent
UPDATED ON JUL 07, 2020 02:44 AM IST

Protests against cutting of trees in Mumbai’s Aarey Colony for a Metro project intensified on Saturday and 29 activists were arrested by police. The police, in an official release, said 29 people were arrested under several sections of IPC after some among the 100-200 protesters got into a scuffle with police officials and assaulted them. Earlier on Saturday morning, Mumbai Police set up check post to stop protesters from moving towards Aarey Colony and the administration imposed prohibitory orders around the colony as the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) resumed felling trees with the help of Mumbai Police around 3:15 am. The protests, which began on Friday night, are against the cutting down of 2,646 trees to construct a car shed for Metro Line 3 soon after the Bombay HC ruled in favour of MMRC, dismissing all petitions against felling trees and refused to declare the colony as a forest. The court order also upheld the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s Tree Authority decision to fell the trees. Watch| Aarey potests: Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi detained by police
