Maoists torch vehicles in Jharkhand

IANS  |  Ranchi 

Maoists set ablaze four vehicles involved in road construction work in Jharkhand's district early on Wednesday, according to police.

The Maoists raided a camp office of a road construction company situated at Pathel village. They threatened the labourers there and drove them, before setting on fire the four vehicles parked outside.

The denial of levy is said to be the reason for the arson.

This year more than 20 vehicles have been torched by the Maoists in different parts of the state.
