CPI (Maoist) activists blew up a rest house at Matlong in Latehar district, the police said here today.

A dozen armed Maoists came to the rest house late Saturday night, packed dynamites before triggering the blast, the police said.

There was no harm to human life.

The ultras destroyed the house as the para-military forces had taken shelter there during the November-assembly elections, the police said quoting the villagers.

The Maoists had blown up a school last month in Chatra on similar grounds.
