A state counsel, who also represented the chief executive officer of Aarey Colony, informed the division bench of chief justice DK Upadhyay and justice Arif Doctor that “no permission shall be granted for immersion of idols in the lakes of Aarey Colony, keeping in view the provisions contained in notification dated December 15, 2016 issued by the Central Government and the guidelines issued by the Central Pollution Control Board on May 12, 2020”
