Armed Maoists on Monday blasted two school buildings at a village in Bihar’s Kaimur district, police said.

Over 200 ultras raided the Duddha village and confined the villagers within their houses in the wee hours before detonating dynamites at a government school and a church-run educational institution.

Both the buildings were badly damaged, police said adding there was no immediate report of any casualty.

After carrying out their operation, the Maoists escaped into the forests.

Patrolling by security forces was intensified as tension ran high in the area even as raids were launched to apprehend the ultras, they added.
