23 sandalwood trees were stolen in one night from the CMTI campus in Bengaluru.
The CEO of CMTI stated in his police report that the theft occurred on the night of August 18 and August 19, but an inquiry revealed that it may have taken place earlier in the month.
On the grounds of the Central Manufacturing Technology Institute (CMTI), an independent R&D center under the Ministry of Heavy Industries, on Tumakuru Road, thieves have cut down and carried away 23 sandalwood trees.
Although the CEO of CMTI claimed in his police complaint that the theft occurred on the night between August 18 and August 19, police inquiry revealed that it may have occurred during the first week of August.
According to police sources, the CMTI management may be trying to hide its mistakes. Notably, there was no CCTV coverage in the vicinity of the trees. The theft appears to have been professionally executed with possibly inside information.
