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.
