New Delhi, Oct 21: The Supreme Court while hearing the arguments of the lawyers in the Aarey case has made it clear that the construction of the metro shed project will continue but there should be no felling of trees. The Supreme Court Bench was then assured that no trees have been cut following the order of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court on Monday said it is not stopping the construction of the Metro shed project in Mumbai's prominent green lung Aarey Colony. A bench of justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta sought a status report with pictures on plantation, transplantation and felling of trees in the Aarey colony area of the BMC.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the civic body BMC, assured the bench that no further tree felling is being done in Aarey colony and complete status quo is being maintained following apex court's last order. The top court posted the matter for further hearing in November.
