Maoists blew up a school building in Garhwa district’s Keta village, police said on Saturday.

About fifty rebels stuffed explosives inside the building Friday night and triggered the blast, damaging three-fourth of the Lohia-Samata High School, they said.

There was no loss of life, police said.

The Maoists had planned to blast the school during their 24-hour shutdown in Jharkhand, Bihar and North Chhattisgarh on Thursday, but security forces had foiled their attempt that day.
