据在印度拥有较好政商关系的中国木材商S先生介绍,印度警方对查禁小叶紫檀走私的查禁力度再次加大,接连破获两起大案,其中一人目前已招供走私1000余吨的小叶紫檀。

而在印度警方接到举报后拦截查获的另一起小叶紫檀走私案中,走私人员运输走私紫檀原木的车辆颇有背景:该车辆为印度安德拉邦钱德拉省长夫人公司的运奶车!

因为牵连到的人物比较敏感,该案已经引起了印度媒体的广泛关注,在印度的报纸、电视、网络上被广泛报道!

现将印度知名媒体(THE HINDU)报道原文摘抄如下: 

Four high-quality logs and an SUV seized; he reportedly smuggled over 1,000 tonne of logs.

A police team, led by CI (East Rural) S. Chandrasekhar, on Monday nabbed Hazi Nazir alias Nazirulla Khan (48) of Old Pension Mohalla locality of Bengaluru, one of the most wanted red sanders smuggling accused, at Penumuru Cross on the outskirts of Chittoor in the early hours of Monday and seized four high-quality logs and an SUV.

The police said Hazi Nazir had been operating as an exporter and smuggler in the banned trade since 2014. As per preliminary investigation, he had smuggled out over 1,000 tonnes of red sanders logs, worth over ? 2,000 crore in the international market, to various countries, mostly the Gulf and South East Asia. A school dropout, he grew to the level of a busy realtor in Karnataka. Establishing links with red sanders smuggling operatives in various places of Tamil Nadu, Hazi Nazir had evaded arrest a number of times. He is wanted in 20 cases in Chittoor district. After producing him in a court in Chittoor, the police shifted him to the sub-jail.

In a cinematic fashion, forest officials of Chittoor Division (West) gave a hot chase to a red sanders smugglers on Monday, and seized an abandoned vehicle with one tonne of logs worth about ? 2 crore, while the miscreants escaped into the forests of Moghili ghat section.

Divisional Forest Officer, T. Chakrapani, acting on a tip-off, deputed a team in Chittoor town, to intercept an SUV carrying the precious logs and bound for Bengaluru. The vehicle with TN registration coming from Tirupati passed Chittoor town, giving a slip to the search party. After an hour-long chase, the miscreants abandoned the vehicle at Moghili ghat section.



作为国内红木行业的旗帜,檀香紫檀(小叶紫檀)属于濒危物种,目前国内的檀香紫檀基本都是通过走私渠道进入国内。

近几年,因为走私印度小叶紫檀(檀香紫檀)而被印度官方查获、抓捕甚至枪杀的事件频繁发生。

特别是在2014年11月后,印度政府对其经CITES许可的两千多吨小叶紫檀拍卖成功后,让印度政府首次看到了这种木头的巨大价值。因此,印度联邦政府及小叶紫檀产地安德拉邦政府均加大了对小叶紫檀走私的查禁力度。

甚至于在2015年4月7日上午,近百名印度安得拉邦奇图尔地区的小叶紫檀走私者在盗伐檀香紫檀(小叶紫檀)的过程中,被当地林业警方查获,并发生交火,印度警方枪杀了20多名走私者!

枪杀20多名小叶紫檀走私者的事件被人权组织指责为“谋杀”,在印度及国际上造成极大影响,也给中国的紫檀行业带来的巨大的震动!

枪杀事件之后,印度警方更是不断破获数十起小叶紫檀走私案件,其中不乏一些行业知名大佬不断落网。
