A 27-year-old man was seriously injured in a bomb blast triggered by Maoists in the wee hours here today, police said.
The rebels had put up flex boards and distributed hand bills and other campaigning material at Venkatapur mandal and surrounding villages in the district ahead of the Maoists' weekly celebrations starting from tomorrow, Deputy Superintendent of Police K Dakshina Murthy said.
The police went and removed the posters and pamphlets, but a flex board in Jayanagar colony here was left out.
Police asked Kartheek, an auto driver, to remove the board and when he tried to remove the sticks, the bomb that was placed in a pit there went off, he said.
The injured youth has been shifted to a private hospital in Warangal.
Combing operation was on to nab the culprits, police added.
