Proscribed CPI-ML (Maoist) activists blew up the control room of a BSNL tower at Maigra village in Bihar's Gaya district late on Tuesday night.

Over 200 heavily armed Naxalites stormed the control room and asked the personnel to vacate it before detonating dynamites, police said on Wednesday.

The ultras have destroyed several towers and control rooms of private operators like Airtel and Reliance besides BSNL at many places in naxal stronghold areas in Gaya, Rohtas, Kaimur and Jehanabad districts during the past one month.
