Patna, March 27 :
A police official said a dozen armed men used dynamites to blow up the towers of a private telecom operator at Dumaria in Gaya, about 100 km from here.
According to police officials in Muzaffarpur, about 70 km from here, Maoists also torched a private bus and blew up a mobile tower. No casualty was reported.
The Maoist strike call evoked mixed response in the state. Normal life was hit in some rural areas but urban areas were largely unaffected.
