Gaya: The residence of BJP leader Anuj Kumar Singh was blasted allegedly by Naxals in Dumariya on Wednesday night. The Naxals also left a poster calling for boycott of elections.
Anuj Kumar Singh’s house bore a horrific look after Naxals used dynamites to blow it, reported news agency ANI. The front wall was reduced to rubble while a major portion of the structure inside the house, belonging to the former MLC, suffered extensive damage as well. No casualties, however, were reported.
The Naxals also put up a poster on the house after the explosion in which they demanded that the upcoming Lok Sabha election should be boycotted.
Police officials reached the spot soon after the incident was reported to them and an investigation has been started.
Dumariya is approximately 80 kilometres southwest of Gaya and the presence of Naxals here remains a challenge for security forces. In fact, most parts of Gaya district has an omnipresent threat from Naxals which makes conducting elections here a massive security challenge
