Maoists blew up a school building in Garhwa district's Keta village, police said today. About fifty rebels stuffed explosives inside the building last night and triggered the blast, damaging three-fourth of the Lohia-Samata High School, they said.

There was no loss of life, police said. The Maoists had planned to blast the school during their 24-hour shutdown in Jharkhand, Bihar and North Chhattisgarh on Thursday, but alert security forces had foiled their attempt that day.
