Maoists blow up railway tracks in Bihar
Suspected Maoist guerrillas have blasted railway tracks in two different places in Bihar disrupting train services on the busy Patna-Howrah route.
Both the incidents took place late on Tuesday.
In Jamui district, guerrillas damaged a railway building and blasted a portion of the track.
Two live bombs and a detonator were recovered from the area on Wednesday following intensive searches.
In the second incident in Munger district, guerrillas blew off a section of the track using landmines, a railway official said.
"About a metre of the track is damaged. Traffic would remain suspended until the affected portion is repaired," he said.
Maoist guerrillas have called for a shutdown to protest police atrocities.
A couple of days ago, Maoist guerrillas allegedly shot dead at least six people in Aurangabad district.
In the wake of escalating violence, the state Election Commission has already postponed the panchayat polls by two weeks.
