Maoists attacked a village in Bihar's Aurangabad district and blew up the house of a Combat Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) personnel, police said on Thursday.

Aurangabad Police Superintendent (SP) Upendra Kumar Sharma said the banned CPI (Maoist) members raided Pipra village late last night and blew up the house of CRPF personnel Vinod Singh, who is currently posted at Barachatti in Gaya district as a member of CoBRA.

The CoBRA force is deployed for anti-Naxal operations in the state.

"The Maoists threatened the family members of Singh and pulled them out of the house. They later laid explosives inside the building and blew it up. The house has been damaged," said the SP.

The Maoists also shouted slogans against the government and CRPF before leaving. The pamphlets left by them at the spot claimed the action was in protest against the July 19 police firing at Madanpur in the district in which two person were killed.

There was not report of any casualty. The SP said the police were conducting raids in and around the area after the incident.
