Aurangabad: Armed Maoists blasted a state-run school at a village in Bihar`s Aurangabad district, police said.

Over 50 ultras surrounded the school building in Tetrain village under Deo police station area and triggered a dynamite blast to blow it up late last night, they said.

Three rooms of the school building were destroyed in the blast, they said.

A powerful bomb was also recovered from adjoining Yadupur village where the Naxalites had blown up a school building last year.
