Ranchi, Nov 30 (IANS) Maoist rebels blew up a school building in Palamau district of Jharkhand Sunday morning, the police said. According to the police, 30 to 40 insurgents belonging to Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) surrounded a school building in Paki block of Palamau district, 190 km from Ranchi, Sunday morning and blew it up.
The rebels left a pamphlet at the spot, which said the building was destroyed to prevent security forces from using it in the future, a police official said.
At present, security forces are occupying 43 school buildings in the state. The Jharkhand High Court last week directed the state government to vacate the school buildings being used by security forces as temporary camps.
