The Aarey Colony members have launched a protest outside Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan's bungalow Prateeksha against his tweet supporting the Mumbai Metro project. The activists have raised their voices against the felling of trees in the leafy colony and they objected to the proposal to make way for a Metro car shed. Several Aarey students have staged outside Big B's residence in Juhu, holding banners and placards carrying messages: 'Save Aarey' and 'Gardens do not make forests'. Police have taken them into their custody.
The incident took place after Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's tree Authority has decided to slash 27,00 trees in the Aarey forest.
