Bombay High Court on Friday dismissed all petitions against  Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) decision to allow felling of more than 2700 trees in Mumbai's Aarey forest.

Activists had been opposing the proposed felling of 2,700 trees in Aarey to make way for the metro car shed and demanding relocation of the depot, which is part of the Metro III project.

Aarey colony, located adjoining the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, is known as a major green lung of the metropolis. Several Bollywood personalities and politicians had also extended their support to the activists protesting against the feeling of trees in Aarey.
