Garhwa: The Maoists destroyed a
school building blasting it in Garhwa district just before
their two-day Bharat bandh ended at midnight, the police said
on Tuesday.

A group of armed Maoists stuffed IED inside a room of a
middle school at Bodari village and triggered the blast,
damaging a large portion of the structure, Superintendent of
Police Michael S Raj told reporters.

After three days of violence in Jharkhand, the Maoists
ended their bandh which was called to protest the killing of
Kishanji, the third ranked leader in the CPI (Maoist), on
November 24 in West Bengal.
