Two sandalwood trees cut down by smugglers in city

Covai Post Network

Miscreants attempted to smuggle out sandalwood trees at two places on Race Course road in the city. Although they successfully managed to cut down the full-grown trees, they were unable to smuggle them out thanks to the alarm raised by security guards.

In the early hours of Sunday, some unidentified persons had cut down a 10-year-old sandalwood tree on the walking track of the Race Course. However, they were not able to smuggle the sandalwood out, as the security guards of a nearby star hotel raised alarm, at which the gang ran away.

Meanwhile an attempt was made to axe another tree just a few metres away from the first incident. Police suspect that it would have occurred around 3 AM.
