Armed Maoists triggered explosions at a government-run residential school for tribal girls, barely few metres away from a BSF camp in the district, police said on Sunday.

About 200 ultras stormed the school premises at Dhepaguda under Narayapatna area and set off at least three blasts last night, causing extensive damage to furniture and other goods, Superintendent of Police Anup Kumar Sahoo said.

However, no one was injured in the attack as the girls had gone home for summer vacation and no damage was caused to the structure.

The ultras put up posters on the wall and shouted slogans before leaving the place.
