Maoists attack mobile towers in Jharkhand

Palamu, Sat, 23 Jul 2011 ANI

Palamu (Jharkhand), July 23 (ANI): Continuing their spiral of violence against democratic and social institutions of the country, the Maoists have been targeting mobile towers in an attempt to disrupt the cellular connectivity in Jharkhand's Palamu District.


They have also been blowing school building by the use of explosives in the region.


According to reports, the explosions triggered by the ultras are of such force that the towers as well as the machinery surrounding them collapse due to the impact.


Criticizing the Maoist activities in the region, Director General of Police, Palamu District, Laxman Prasad, on Friday said that the police is doing its best to uproot the Maoists.


"We are taking actions against the Maoists and hoping that they do not attack near the mobile towers. This is a war-like situation-they attack towers and even schools. They say children are not given proper education, so they destroy schools," he said.


Prasad further said that locals suffer the most due to the destruction of the towers, as it disables them from talking to their relatives using mobile phones.


"Though the police do not face problems due to the destroyed towers, as we use wireless technology, the locals are the main sufferers. The villagers used to talk to their children living abroad on mobile phones," he added. (ANI)
