During a joint operation of the SSB’s 17th Battalion and the forest department, unwarranted wooden logs worth Rs. 3 lakhs were recovered from North Rangalibajna Dangapara and Falakata West Jharveltali.
A ranger of the forest department, Khageshwar Karji, said that the wood had been cut into pieces and had been hidden in drains, jute fields and bamboo bushes.
It is being believed that the wood was meant to be smuggled to other areas. However, no arrests have been made in connection to the case so far.
