Gaya: Over a hundred Maoists gathered and blew up two mobile phone towers of a private company by exploding powerful bombs, on Thursday. The powerful explosion took place at Manjhauli and Dumaria Bazar villages of Gaya district late last night. This explosion occurred just ahead of two election rallies of Bjp’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. It is believed the attack was launched to sabotage Modi’s two election rallies scheduled at Maoist-hit Sasaram and Gaya on Thursday afternoon. The Maoists have called for a bandh in the Maoist-hit districts of south central part of the state in protest against the killing of ten of their cadres in Chhatra recently. The state police and paramilitary forces were taking additional measures to counter any threat from the ultras.
