Naxals Torch Four Road Construction Vehicles


Patna: Naxals in Bihar’s Munger district torched four road construction vehicles on Thursday. They also burned three other vehicles along with it.

The police authorities have confirmed that Naxals have abducted eight labourers in the process but freed four of them. A search operation has been launched to track down the Naxals and the abductees.

The Munger area is considered to be Naxal-affected. The Maoists have repeatedly carried out many destructive incidents. At the moment, more than two dozen SSB jawans reached the spot and the police is investigating the case.

Earlier on May 1 Naxalites had set ablaze as many as five vehicles engaged in road construction work in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district.
