A fully-grown sandalwood tree has been chopped down and stolen from the footpath of the house of disqualified MLA K Sudhakar in northern Bengaluru’s Sadashivanagar. 

The theft is suspected to have taken place as early as in July. Following a complaint from local residents, assistant police sub-inspector Nagaraj visited the spot on October 3 and opened an investigation. 

An FIR was subsequently registered under the Karnataka Forest Act. Nagaraj said they were reviewing the CCTV footage of the surrounding areas to identify the suspects.
