101 East investigates the rise of an Indian sandalwood smuggling kingpin and fights to capture him.
Indian red sandalwood is one of the most expensive woods in the world. It is also an endangered species.
The global black market has destroyed valuable forests, and smuggling gangs threaten government officials.
One person is accused of being at the top of the business – Sahul Hameed.
Hameed is wanted by Indian authorities and Interpol for smuggling precious wood. But he remains ordinary.
101 East investigates Hameed’s alleged links to terrorists and international efforts to bring him to justice.
