Maoists blow up school building in BiharMarch 27th, 2011 - 11:59 am ICT by ANI
Barachatti (Bihar), Mar.27 (ANI): A group of around 50 Maoists belonging to the Bhakpa group blew up a school building in the Maoist infested Barachatti block of the Gaya District in Bihar using explosives.
The gang also torched the house of Vijay Yaday, one of the members of rival Maoists group Shastra Pratirodh Manch (SPM), as they suspected him of being a police agent.
Veena Devi, wife of Vijay Yadav, said: ” They asked us to open the door, but when I refused they threatened to kill us. I opened the door in fear but before I could do that, two of them jumped over the wall, and dragged all our family members out of the house and torched all our belongings by sprinkling petrol and kerosene oil,” adding that there were around 50 men present at the time.
None of the Yadav family members have been harmed in the incident.
The Maoist insurgency has gripped nearly one-third of the country in violence, spreading into rural pockets of 20 of India’s 28 states.
Initially, the Maoists contended that they were fighting for the cause of the poor and weaker sections of the society.
However, over the past two decades the ‘mass struggle for rights’ has turned into a violent unrest, with the rebels targeting policemen and government establishments to prove their point. (ANI)
