Mumbai’s Aarey colony has been in the news since the Bombay High Court dismissed four pleas contesting the decision of the Brihanmumbai Municipal corporation (BMC) to cut over 2,600 trees in the said colony to build a metro.

Protests broke out since yesterday and continued this morning as the authorities began cutting the trees. But people were even removed from the spot by police. 

Several people took to their social media opposing this move.  

It is a sad day for the climate.
