Patna: A government school teacher has been arrested for helping Maoists who blew up his school in Bihar`s Rohtas district, police said on Thursday.
Maoists on Tuesday used dynamite to blow up the government middle school building at Parchha village in Rohtas, about 150 km from here, police said.
Police suspected that Ajit Mishra, who was posted at that school, was involved in supplying explosives, remote control devices, fuse wires and other equipment to the Maoists that was used in several explosions in Rohtas and neighbouring districts.
Rohtas Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj said: "Police have been interrogating Mishra after he was arrested from his native village Tiara Kala following continuous electronic surveillance and intelligence inputs."
The banned Communist Party of India-Maoist guerrillas have blasted nearly half a dozen state run schools in the last five months in Gaya, Aurangabad, Banka, Jamui and Rohtas districts.
