Maoists blast dynamite in Bihar school

Aurangabad (PTI): Suspected Maoists blasted dynamite on early Monday in a state-run school at Ketaki village in Bihar's Aurangabad district.

The police said more than 150 Maoist guerrilas raided the school and triggered dynamite blasts to blow up the school building.

But the school building was not damaged as the explosion was not powerful, sources said.

They took away a generator of the school before police reached the spot, sources said.

The ongoing school attacks by Maoists have been an attempt to foil administration's bid to house Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and other para-military forces in schools for deployment in Maoist-hit areas during Lok Sabha polls, police said.

Maoists have blasted two school buildings in Jamui and Gaya districts in Bihar recently.
