Bombay HC asks MMRC to prove no damage done to children park


The Bombay High Court has asked the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation to prove that it did not damage a children park while executing its Line III project.

Observing that environment cannot be massacred in name of development, a bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice G S Kulkarni gave this order while hearing pleas challenging the proposed felling of over 5,000 trees to execute the Seepz-Colaba Metro Line III project.

The high court had earlier directed the MMRCL not to cut any tree till further orders. The counsel for the petitioners on Wednesday told the court that the MMRCL had destroyed a children’s park in Cuffe Parade for digging work despite the Ministry of Environment and Forest refusing permission to them to carry out any work there since the area falls under the Coastal Regulation Zone.
