A group of armed Maoists attacked the petrol pump, situated oncin Gaya district, about 125 km from here, late on Thursday. The guerrillas blew up its main building and tried to set ablaze the oil point, tanker and generator room, police said.

No casualty was reported but four employees of the petrol station have been missing since the incident.
