MUMBAI: It has come to light that the Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) submitted a deceptive status report in order to secure permissions from state government authorities for construction of a new DP road passing through vast stretches of mangroves, coastal regulation zone (CRZ), and wetlands in Bhayandar.
