Maoists destroy under-construction community hall in Bihar

Press Trust of India  |  Gaya 

Maoists triggered a blast in an under-construction community hall at a village in Bihar's Gaya district, destroying the structure.

The Maoists stormed into Jangai village yesterday night and detonated explosives in the under-construction building, damaging it totally.

The ultras left behind leaflets claiming responsibility for the incident, Barachatti police station in-charge Chetnanand Jha said.

They targeted the structure as the community hall was being constructed to serve as a police picket in the Maoist-affected area, Jha said.

A case has been registered in this connection and raids were being carried out to nab the Maoists, Jha said.
