4,022 trees cut for Taj project: penal action sought

Legal Correspondent

New Delhi: An application was filed on Saturday in the Taj Heritage case seeking penal action against those who cut 4,022 trees for widening the road for the Yamuna Expressway corridor project up to Agra.

Without permission

In his plea, advocate Ajay Aggarwal submitted that the trees were cut for the project without obtaining permission from the court.

Hence, he wanted a direction to the Krishan Mahajan Committee to verify the number of trees and submit a report.

Mr. Aggarwal said that if it was found that the trees had been cut without permission appropriate penal action should be taken against the respondents concerned.

A three-judge Bench, headed by Justice D.K. Jain, is hearing matters related to the Taj project. During the last hearing on August 6, the court expressed its concern over the felling of so many trees without its permission.

The present application has been filed pursuant to this order.
