Latehar (Jharkhand): Maoists on Saturday set ablaze two pay-loaders of the Central Coalfield Limited (CCL) near Tori railway station here.

About 20 members of Jharkhand Prastuti Committee (JPC), a Maoist outfit, arrived at the CCl's coal loading site and set on fire the pay-loaders.

They also abducted about 15 home-guards on duty, beat them and looted their mobile phones and torches, the sources said.

The Naxals then set them free with a warning that the coal loading should be done manually and not with machines.

A case has been lodged under Chandwa Police Station on the statement of the victims, the sources added.
