Malkangiri: Maoists blew up a Block office building in Malkangiri district early Tuesday, official sources said.

Over 50 heavily armed rebels stormed into Padia under
Kalimela police station area, about 70 km from here, and
triggered a landmine explosion to blow up the block office
building, they said.

After blasting the newly constructed building, the
ultras disappeared into the nearby forest raising slogans
against anti-naxal operations by the security forces, Padia
Block Development Officer (BDO) Michael Tiga said.
The ultras had recently blown up the police outpost at
Padia, police said adding the outpost has been lying defunct
since then.
Over a dozen buildings including village panchayat
offices, godowns and schools have been destroyed by the
Maoists so far this year, sources said.
