Maoists blow up rail track in Jharkhand

Maoist guerrillas blew up a railway track in Jharkhand to enforce a two-day shutdown called by them to protest the killing of their members by another splinter group last month, police said on Sunday.

Maoists blasted the rail track between Chhipadohar and Barwadih railway stations in Latehar district Saturday night, a police official said.  Timely information about the incident averted a major tragedy as the Rajdhani Express was to pass over the damaged track.

Maoists called the shutdown in Bihar and Jharkhand beginning on Saturday to protest against the killing of 10 of their members.
