Maoists blast two mobile tower control rooms

Jamui: Maoists blasted two control rooms of telecom towers in Bihar`s Jamui district late last night, police said.

About 50 heavily-armed ultras came to the control rooms of private telecom operators and blew up the facilities detonating dynamites at Mahugayen village under Sonu police station area, Superintendent of Police R N Singh said.

The Maoists triggered the blast in apparent protest against the killing of six naxalites during an encounter with police at Manjhidih village under Katoria police station area in neighbouring Banka district on February 26.

The ultra-left outfit have called a 48-hour bandh in the area to protest against the encounter.
