Maoist guerrillas have blown up an under-construction police outpost in Malkanagiri district of Orissa, police said on Saturday.
"It was an under-construction police outpost. Maoists blew up part of the building Friday night. We had planned this outpost to increase our presence by stationing more armed personnel there," Malkanagiri sub-divisional police officer Anup Sahu said.
According to police, about 40 armed Maoists were involved in the attack.
Malkanagiri is over 600 km from here.
