According to Aarey Activist Yash Marwah, 

Thankfully, at least we are able to visit the transplantation site and see the failure for ourselves. When it comes to the barricaded area, so many lies are buried there for 2 years but we are helpless. Hope we get a tree inspection opportunity for the proposed metro car shed plot soon.

Here are some of the pictures which were clicked by the activists of the transplanted trees which are already dead:
