On Friday, October 4, videos of trees being cut down at Mumbai's Aarey forest made their way to social media. Despite the protests, Bombay High Court quashed all petitions filed against BMC's move to cut down trees for the Metro car shed. Lats night, BMC began cutting down trees at the Aarey site leaving citizens enraged. Protestors swiftly made their way to Aarey colony in the middle of the night and now celebrities too are taking to social media to share their views on the same. Amitabh Bachchan Faces Backlash for Supporting Mumbai Metro, People Protest ’Save Aarey outside Megastar's Residence.
