Maoists torch construction equipment in Malkangiri

After a few days’ lull, Maoists on Tuesday again went on the rampage at Luler village under the Mathili police station in the district and set ablaze road construction equipment, opposing the road work.

Sources said the armed rebels swooped down on the camp of a construction firm and asked the staffs and labourers to leave the spot.

Then they set a tractor, road roller and other equipments ablaze. The maoists left a poster behind claiming the incident to be their handiwork.
