Maoists blew up three culverts in Bihar’s naxal-hit Aurangabad district in the wee hours of Friday, police said.

Around 50 naxalites planted dynamites in the culverts at Kachanpur, Bhedhna and Berhani villages and blasted them, they said, adding raids were on in the area to nab the ultras.

Police said Maoists blew up the culverts over alleged non-payment of the extortion amount by the contractors constructing them in the district.
