CHAIBASA: An under-construction panchayat bhawan has been blown up by suspected CPI (Maoist) ultras at Dumbuli village in Jharkhand's West Singhbhum
district, police superintendent Akhilesh Kumar Jha said today.

Around 30 ultras equipped with fire-arms blew up the building late last night.

The police rushed to the spot and a massive combing operation was launched to track down the culprits, he said.

Earlier, the Maoists had set on fire a crusher plant in Manoharpur and torched three earth movers at Sonua in the district two days ago.
