Patna: At least 300 students in a village in Bihar's Lakhisarai district lost their school which was destroyed in a blast by Maoists ahead of voting in six parliamentary constituencies of the state Thursday.
The new building of the government high school at Narotampur under Kazra police station totally collapsed in the blast late Wednesday night. The school was targeted as paramilitary personnel were camping in it.
"After the blast, studies in the school will be badly hit and students will either miss their classes or will have to sit under shadow of trees for classes if teachers go ahead," said district administration official Sukhdeo Singh.
According to local police officials, angry villagers protested the incident and demanded the building be rebuilt.
