Maoists blow up police station room in Bihar`s Aurangabad district
Aurangabad: Maoists blew up a room of newly- constructed building of Khudwa police station in Bihar`s Aurangabad district and left two live bombs in the premises which were later defused, a police officer said on Sunday.
The Maoists barged into the Kudhwa police station late last night and detonated bombs made from two small cylinders damaging a room of the newly-constructed building, Superintendent of Police Daljit Singh said.
There was no major damage to the building as two bombs planted in other rooms failed to explode, he said, adding the explosives were later defused by the bomb disposal squad.
The Maoists attack on the police building coincided with the death anniversary of the Naxal leader Charu Majumdar.
There was no loss of life and property as the police station was yet to shift to the new building, Singh said.
Raids were being carried out to nab the ultras, the SP said.
