Hundreds of armed Maoists attacked a village in Bihar's Vaishali district on Monday night and killed four people in apparent retaliation for attacks on the rebels.


Official sources said the Maoists attacked Sukki village in Vaishali, 55 km away, and killed four people. The rebels also attacked the house of the village body head and tried to set it ablaze.

Tirhut range Deputy Inspector General of Police Arvind Pandey said that police forces have been rushed to the village.

According to Pandey, the Maoist attack could have been aimed at the village body head.

Official sources said Sukki village was targeted as it is dominated by landed upper caste-Bhumihars, who have been countering Maoist rebels in the area.

Armed Maoists surrounded the village from all sides and stood guard while their comrades carried out the attack.
