Heavily-armed Maoist rebels on Tuesday again bombed three government buildings that they had targeted the previous day in the district.
An unspecified number of CPI (Maoist) guerrillas swooped on Chakarbanda village at around 3 AM and brought down the portions of the buildings of a middle school, community centre and panchayat bhawan that were still left standing after they bombed them yesterday, police said.
The naxalites had yesterday attacked a police team led by DIG (Magadh range) Anupama S Nilekar when it was returning to Gaya after inspecting Chakarbanda village after the blasts but no casualty was reported.
The naxalites had retreated into Barnawa forest after the police retaliated.
However, they returned early this morning and blasted the residual portions of the building, police said.
