Maoists blast school building

Gaya: Armed Maoists blew up a state-run school building at Barhara in Chakkarbandha forest in naxal-hit Gaya district late last night according to police sources.

Over fifty ultras armed with sophisticated weapons surrounded the school, commanded the villagers watching a cultural programme to leave the premises and detonated dynamites to blow up the building. The building was earlier being used as a CRPF camp, the police said. Raids were on in the forest area to apprehend the ultras.
