With monsoon teak smugglers active in Bastar, forest dept not bothered

Imran Khan from Bhopalpatnam in Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh is telling that with farmers, wood smugglers also wait eagerly for monsoon here. With monsoon the smugglers have started putting very expensive teak woods on the river side. They are waiting for water flow in river Indravati. The members of Forest security committee are earning and forest department is not concerned. Once there is enough water in Indravati these logs would go to Andhra and Maharashtra markets.
