Maoists torch six vehicles in Bihar

Patna, Sep 5 (IANS) Suspected Maoists torched half a dozen vehicles and machines of a private construction company on Monday in Bihar’s Gaya district, police said.

“A group of armed Maoists attacked the camp of SP Malik Company Private Limited near Paimar river on Gaya-Wazirganj road… They torched six vehicles, including their machines — a JCB, crane and Poklane — for not paying levy demanded by the outfit,” a district police official said.

According to police officials, Maoists also assaulted employees of the construction company, which is engaged in construction of a railway overbridge here.
