Maoist torch vehicles in Jharkhand’s Bokaro

Ranchi: Maoist guerrillas set on fire three vehicles and a generator in Jharkhand’s Bokaro district early on Thursday, police said.

The Maoists, numbering 10-12, raided a camp office of a private company involved in road construction in Lodhi Panchayat.

They thrashed the staff and later set on fire a JCB vehicle, a tractor, a mixture machine and a generator.

Refusal to pay ‘levy’ or protection money to the Maoists apparently led to the incident.
