NAGPUR: Four armed miscreants, whose involvement with the Naxals is yet to be ascertained, stopped a few vehicles, including a state transport

bus, between Guddigodam and Mausam on Sironcha-Alapalli road on Tuesday evening and looted the passengers.

The looting spree went on for nearly four hours until 10pm. Sources said the miscreants, two of whom had firearms, had blocked the road by felling a tree near Tekampalli.

The bus, which was heading to Aheri from Sironcha, was also stopped after the road was blocked by stranded vehicles. Gadchiroli SP S Jayakumar said that he was verifying the incident. “No one was injured and nor was any property damaged," he said.
