Mumbai Police cordoned off the road of the Aarey Colony after implication of Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) on its residents.
All roads have been blocked to impede around 100 activists, locals and Adivasis after foisting Section 144 on them.
With the consent of Bombay High Court, Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation started recklessly cutting trees in the areas around the rampart of Aarey Colony making space for Metro 3 car shed.
Locals and activists reached the scene shoving towards the barricaded area to count the number of fallen trees. They protested against MMRC and the government for such an action. It resulted in police lathi charge and arrest of 150 people.
Reuben Mascarenhas, national joint secretary of Aam Aadmi Party, also joined the protest and got detained in the police station.
Aditya Thackeray, Shiv Sena leader, criticised Mumbai Metro for cutting more than 1000 trees in Aarey Colony. He defends the activists and locals who are detained by police after protesting against the axing of trees.
He represented Shiv Sena, an ally of BJP party, in support with protesters and requested the chief minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadanvis to abolish the charges against the activists and set them free.
He says that it would be shameful for Maharastra for arresting students and youths under the non-bailable section of IPC and some such charts against them. People are showing their love for the environment. Apprehending them under such charges will affect the reputation of India at the United Nations, creating a situation of hypocrisy.
