Jamui: Armed Maoists shot dead a villager and burnt equipment of BSNL and Reliance towers in the district Monday, police said.

The bike-borne Maoists arrived at Dayaldih village and set fire to the towers after ordering some villagers, who were sleeping nearby, to leave, they said.

When a villager Bhim Thakur raised an alarm the ultras shot him dead and also fired a few shots to scare away people.

A coming operation has been launched, they said, adding the ultras have given a 24-hour shut down call from midnight last night to protest the arrest of their 'commander' of Jharkhand-Bihar zone Samir Das in Banka district three days ago.
