India: Maoists blow up cellphone towers in Orissa

MALKANGIRI (Orissa): Maoist blew up two signal towers of a mobile phone service provider in Orissa's Malkangiri district on Saturday.
The towers were destroyed by using explosives at Kangrukunda and MPV-22 under Kalimela police station, about 30 km from here yesterday.
Large quantities of cables kept near the structure were also set ablaze by the Maoists, they said adding that the Maoists are against spread of telephone network in the region as it facilitates sharing information with the police.
The Maoists feel that telephones, including mobile ones, enable police informers to pass on information about the movement and activities of the Maoist Revolutionaries.
