Koraput (Orissa): Armed Maoists triggered
explosions at a government-run residential school for tribal
girls, barely few metres away from a BSF camp in the district,
police said on Sunday.

About 200 ultras stormed the school premises at Dhepaguda
under Narayapatna area and set off at least three blasts last
night, causing extensive damage to furniture and other goods,
Superintendent of Police Anup Kumar Sahoo said.

However, no one was injured in the attack as the girls
had gone home for summer vacation and no damage was caused to
the structure.

The ultras put up posters on the wall and shouted slogans
before leaving the place.

A BSF camp is located barely 500 metres from the
Kanyashram but the Maoists could manage to target the school
before the security personnel intervened.

Combing operation had been intensified in the area, Sahoo
added.
