3 policemen injured in landmine blast in Jharkhand

Chatra (Jharkhand), Nov 30 (PTI) Three policemen were today injured when Maoists triggered a landmine blast in Chatra on the second day of their two-day Jharkhand shutdown.

Three patrolling police personnel were wounded at Baldih when their vehicle drove over a landmine, police sources said.

In another incident, armed naxalites surrounded the house of RJD's block president Chandrika Yadav at Chatra's Johri village in Vasisthnagar area last night and asked family members to vacate the house, district Superintendent of Police Jatin Narwal told reporters here.

The Maoists then packed dynamites in every room before triggering the blast, he said.

The Maoists left notes warning against participation in the ensuing elections.

A separate group of Maoists bombed another school at Soude village in Khunti district last last night, Khunti district Superintendent of Police A V Minz said.

They also destroyed two schools late last night at Kharagpur and Bhavwar villages in Palamau district.
