Maoists have torched two dumpers and as many rollers of a road construction company in Bihar's Gaya district, police said on Saturday.

Armed rebels late Friday attacked the temporary office of a construction firm near Sherghati in Gaya, about 100 km from here, police said.

They set on fire dumpers and rollers, creating panic among the company's employees.

Maoists apparently targeted the construction company to extort money, police said.

A case has been filed and search operations are on to trace the Maoists.
