Malkangiri (Orissa): Armed Maoists blew up a school building in Orissa's Malkangiri district early today.
About 100 heavily-armed rebels stormed into MV-21 village under Kalimela police station area, about 50 km from here, in the early hours and blew up the building, causing extensive damage to the structure, police said.
The school building was targeted as the Maoists felt it would be utilised for accommodating security forces during anti-Naxal operation, police said.
Security personnel were sent to the village in order to conduct combing operation to track the ultras, they said.
The attack came a day after the ultras blew up a panchayat office building and a godown in Kalimela area of the Maoist-hit district.
The rebels have blasted about six government buildings in the district in last one month.
Earlier, the brutal face of Naxals came to the fore on June 29 when they after killing 27 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in Narayanpur district of Chhattisgarh slit open throats and smashed the heads of some of the security men.
In yet another heinous incidents, the Maoists had massacred 76 policemen in Chhattisgarh on April 6, and on May 17, a Maoist landmine attack on a bus killed 24 civilians and 11 policemen.
