Palamu, Wed, 26 Jan 2011 ANI

Palamu/Latehar, Jan 26 (ANI): Maoists attacked two schools in Jharkhand's Palamu and Latehar districts on the occasion of the 62nd Republic Day on Wednesday.


In Palamu, Maoists damaged a classroom and the doors of a school using bombs and wrote anti-government slogans on the walls.


"We got information that there was a bomb blast in a school. When we reached here, we saw that the iron gate was blasted and 'Maoists' was written on a poster," said S. N. Sahu, the in-charge of the local police station.


Sahu added that the country had struggled for independence for many years, and they would not compromise their freedom with ideologies and propaganda of the Maoists.


In Latehar, Maoists hoisted a black flag on the terrace of a school and stuck a poster with anti-government slogans and threats.


The school children did not hoist the national flag following the Maoist threat.


"We had come all ready to hoist the national flag and as soon as we reached the school, we saw that there was a black flag hoisted and a poster was stuck on the school wall. So how do we hoist the national flag then?" said Phool Kumari, a student.


Teachers also said that they did not want to take the risk by hoisting the national flag. (ANI)
