Raipur: Naxals destroyed a newly constructed police station using explosives in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district, police said on Wednesday.

Following the incident which took place on Monday night, the state government transferred Dantewada SP Ankit Garg and posted him at police headquarters here, official sources said.

A group of 50 Maoists assembled at the police station near Geedam area and asked the labourers present there to leave. They blasted the building using huge amount of explosives, police said, adding there were no reports of any casualty.

The police station, which was completely destroyed, was recently constructed at a cost of Rs 30 lakh, but it didn't have adequate security, they said.
