The APSRTC has stalled all transports through road to Tamil Nadu at the border areas of Chittoor, in the wake of the now infamous encounter at Chandragiri, which resulted in death of 20 suspected red sandalwood smugglers on Tuesday.

Since, most of the alleged smugglers are believed to be from Vellore in Tamil Nadu, the bus transport system from Andhra Pradesh to Tamil areas has been suspended indefinitely.

The buses from Andhra Pradesh to Tamil Nadu were vandalized in the border areas on Tuesday night following the encounter. Hence, the transport authority of AP decided to be on the safer side and stop the bus services to Tamil areas.
