Naxalites attack school building in Bihar

Jamui (PTI): Armed activists of proscribed CPI (Maoist) blasted a State-run school at Chormara village in Bihar's Jamui district in the wee hours on Tuesday.

Around 50 heavily-armed ultras surrounded the Choramara Madhya Vidayalaya under Bhimbandh forest range and blew up the school building by using dynamites, police said. However, no casualties were reported in the attack, they said.

Raids were being carried out at different places to apprehend the naxalites. The Maoist operation was aimed at pre-empting the administration's plan to use the school building for the stay of the central para-military force personnel during elections, the police said.
