Garhwa (Jharkhand): The Maoists destroyed a school building blasting it in Garhwa district just before their two-day Bharat bandh ended at midnight.
A group of armed Maoists stuffed IED inside a room of a middle school at Bodari village and triggered the blast, Superintendent of Police Michael S Raj told reporters here.
A large portion of the structure was damaged in the incident.
After three days of violence in Jharkhand, the Maoists ended their bandh which was called to protest the killing of Kishenji.
Kishenji was the third ranked leader in the CPI (Maoist), on November 24 in West Bengal.
