On the day of their shutdown call in protest against President Barak Obama's
India visit, Maoist on Monday blew up a school  building, killed two persons
and block roads in south Orissa districts of  Malkangiri, Nawrangpur and
Koraput, police said. The police, on the other hand, arrested two persons in
Koraput while they  were allegedly supplying explosives to the Maoists.
Police said about 30  armed cadres of the Communist Party of India (Maoist)
raided the newly  constructed residential school building for tribal
students at Gomphakunda  village in Malkangiri, about 600 km southwest of
Bhubaneswar in the wee  hours and blew it up with landmine.

No one was inside the building at the time of the blast. They left posters
at the site which protested President Obama's India visit.

"It was a sheer  desperation on the part of the Maoists to have blown up a
newly  constructed school building," Southern range DIG Soumendra
Priyadarshi  told the Hindustan Times. In another incident, the armed ultras
killed two  persons at Dimanpur in Nawrangpur district – just four
kilometers from the  Chhatisgarh border and about 550 km southwest of
Bhubandwar. In the  posters they left behind, the ultras claimed that the
two were punished as  they indulged in criminal activities in the area by
claiming themselves as  Maoists. The Maoists also felled trees on the road
from Jaypore in Koraput  district to Malkangiri distupting vehicular traffic
completely along the route.
