為國內紅木行業的旗幟,檀香紫檀(小葉紫檀)屬于瀕危物種,目前國內的檀香紫檀基本都是通過走私渠道進入國內。近期,中國的西藏邊防及黃埔、天津、青島等地海關近期屢屢破獲小葉紫檀走私大案,讓行業繃緊了神經。

    今日,根據東陽紅木木材微信公眾平臺特邀顧問從印度安德拉邦發來報道,在4月7日上午,近百名印度安得拉邦奇圖爾地區的小葉紫檀走私者在盜伐檀香紫檀(小葉紫檀)的過程中,被當地林業警方查獲,并發生交火,至少造成8名執法人員受傷,后在特遣部隊的支授下,警方擊斃了至少20名走私者!

    據悉,印度政府于2014年11月成功組織了拍賣,中國買家拍下的1000余噸小葉紫檀于近日正在組織裝貨。

    此次拍賣不僅讓印度政府看到了該木種的價值,加大了查禁力度,也刺激了更多的印度人鋌而走險,參與到了走私的行列。

     客觀的說,這些伐木工大多為當地的村民,受雇于走私集團,都是最下層干苦力的人,遭此橫禍,同情!

    據悉,此次槍殺事件在印度及國際上已造成極大影響,已被告上了人權法庭,因此,可能會對國內小葉紫檀行業產生重大而深刻的影響!
