Maoists blow up government buildings in Rourkela

Rourkela, Dec 19 (PTI) CPI(Maoists) today bombed two government buildings at Relhatur village in Orissa's Sundargarh district.

Around 100 armed ultras stormed Relhatur village and bombed the panchayat office and its adjoining panchayat store building.

An eyewitness said the maoists were shouting anti- government slogans asking villagers "dekho hum uda raha hai tumhara building, bullao police ko" (see we are blasting your buildings, call the police).

The ultras also pasted hand written posters at nearby villages of Rengeda and Topadih.



The people of Mahupada, Jharbeda, Relhatur, Sanbalijore and Nangalkata village had earlier left their houses fearing the maoists and staged a dharna before K Balang police station and NH No 215 demanding security in their villages.

The villagers had returned only three days back after the security camps opened in their villages.
