Suspected Naxalites torched several vehicles of a construction company on the border of Chatra and Hazaribagh districts, police said today.

Around 12 suspected activists of newly formed Jharkhand Sanyukt Party, a Naxalite group, set three trucks and an
identical number of earth movers on fire at a place under Simaria police station in Chatra district last night,
Superintendent of Police NK Singh told newsmen.

The charred trucks and earth movers belonged to a Kolkata-based private construction company.

Extortion could be the motive behind the act, the police said.
