Patna, Feb 16 About 150 Maoists have blown up a wall of a jail under construction in Bihar's Sheohar district on Monday. No casualties were reported.
Maoists attacked the under-construction prison in Sheohar late Sunday night and triggered the blast after forcing the workers out of the building.
Though no casualties were reported, the incident has created panic among workers engaged in building the prison.
The Maoists fled after causing the blast, but left behind pamphlets that warned of more such attacks.
Two days ago, Maoists set ablaze vehicles engaged in construction of roads in the district.
