Suspected Maoists on Friday night blew up a community hall in Bandhgora village in Jhargram, police said.

A group of ultras reached Bandhgora, a Maoist strong hold area, at about 10 pm and triggered a landmine blast to blow up the community hall built by the local panchayat.

Earlier on September 24, the community hall was ransacked and torched, and an office of the Communist Party of India-Marxist's farmer organisation blown up by the Maoists.
