Garhwa (Jharkhand): Maoists blew up a
school building in Garhwa district`s Keta village, police said on Saturday.

About fifty rebels stuffed explosives inside the
building last night and triggered the blast, damaging
three-fourth of the Lohia-Samata High School, they said.
There was no loss of life, police said.
The Maoists had planned to blast the school during
their 24-hour shutdown in Jharkhand, Bihar and North
Chhattisgarh on Thursday, but alert security forces had foiled
their attempt that day.
