Maoists blew up two schools in the district in the wee hours today. The ultras packed explosives inside Upgraded Haridih School and Upgraded Dharpahari School, damaging the structures, police said in Giridih.

There was no loss of life in the incident. Police personnel have set out on foot to reach the place of the
bombing to avoid landmines.

Maoists usually trigger blasts in schools which the security forces have used as shelters during their anti-naxal
operations.
