Ara (Bihar) (PTI): Armed CPI (Maoist) activists torched four tractors and a machine of a private firm engaged in the construction of the building of Piro railway station in Bihar's Bhojpur district, police said on Tuesday.

The naxalites raided the camp office of the private firm and set the tractors and machine on fire late last night, P Umesh Kumar said, adding no injuries were reported in the attack.

Non-payment of money demanded by the naxalites from the firm management was stated to be reason behind the attack, he said.
