Jamui: Maoists triggered a blast in a school building in Bihar`s Jamui district, damaging the structure. A group of Maoists stormed the government school last night and detonated explosives in the building damaging it totally, Superintendent of Police Deepak Barnwal said on Saturday.
The Maoists attacked the school building apparently in retaliation to intensified operation by the security forces against them, he said.
