The woman was then taken to a hospital and was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). She succumbed to her injuries on Friday morning.

The surprising detail is the discovery of an application filed to cut the same tree on February 17 this year, under which a fee of Rs 1,380 was also deposited. However, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials had inspected the tree and told the applicant, one Avinash Pol, that it was still healthy.

The local councillor Asha Marathe has written to the BMC demanding action and accused officials responsible for being negligent. She has also demanded an inquiry against them.
