‘You will be in trouble if anything is done to Aravali’

The Supreme Court on Friday cautioned the Haryana government against doing “anything” to harm the ecologically fragile Aravali Hills.

A Bench led by Justice Arun Mishra was responding to a submission by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that he would prove that the State had not introduced amendments to the Punjab Land Preservation Act, 1900, in order to give leeway to illegal mining or builders.

“We are concerned with Aravali. If you are doing anything with Aravali or Kant Enclave, you will be in trouble. If you are doing anything with forest, you will be in trouble. We are telling you,” the Bench said.
