Armed activists of the banned CPI (Maoists) blew up the Chakand railway station by detonating dynamites in Bihar's Gaya district on Monday night, a senior police official said.

Superintendent of Police Sunil Kumar Jha said that around 20 Naxalites surrounded Chakand railway station on Patna-Gaya section of the East Central Railway at 11 pm and asked the railway employees to vacate the premises before blowing it with dynamites.

No casualty was reported, Jha said.

Raids were being carried out to arrest the Maoists who have given a call for boycott of election in Bihar.
