The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) on Monday said 2,141 trees in North Mumbai’s Aarey Colony have already been felled for the construction of a car shed, hours after the Supreme Court stayed the chopping of more trees in the city’s ‘green lung’. In a release, the MMRC said no future tree felling will be carried out at the site till the Supreme Court gives any further directions, but construction activity in the area from where the tree were cleared will be started. #SaveAarey #MMRC #AareyForest
