Huge cache of red sanders logs seized in Chennai

  • The red sanders trail has, yet again, led the Tirupati Urban cops to Chennai.
  • The policemen were taken aback to see the redwood not just as logs, but also in various forms such as powder, chips, beads and art pieces.
  • This gives a new angle to the history of seizure of logs, revealing the direct or indirect involvement of craftsmen, who have converted the red sanders logs into eye-catching artefacts.
  • This is for the first time that the wood is smuggled in the form of finished products.
