Bihar: Naxals blow up school buildings

April 10, 2007 14:07 IST

Naxalites blew up buildings of two adjacent schools, which till a month ago housed a Central Reserve Police Force picket, in Bihar's Munger district early Tuesday.

An unspecified number of suspected Communist Party of India-Maoist guerrillas descended on Banahara village, about 25 km from Munger, and blew up a few rooms of a high school and a middle school using dynamites, Superintendent of Police Ravindran Shankaran said.

No casualty was reported as nobody was present in the two buildings at the time of the incident. The police recovered some can bombs from the place of the incident, he said.
