Garwah (Jharkhand): CPI (Maoists) on Sunday torched a valuable equipment engaged in road construction work and beaten up two employees of the contractor before setting them free with a warning at Tehla village in naxal-hit Garwah district.
A group of the rebels arrived at the spot in the wee
hours and beat up two assistants of the contractor’s firm
before they poured petroleum product on a JCB machines and set
it on fire, police sources said.

The JCB was engaged in the road construction work under
centre-sponsored Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana.
The construction work, which was stopped after the ultras
had set a JCB machine at the same place around one and half
years ago, was resumed recently following the pressure of the
Union Government.
