Ranchi (Agencies): In yet another protest against price rise, Maoists on Monday blew up railway tracks at two different places in Jharkhand and began a day-long strike in three states against corruption.

A group of armed Maoists packed explosives to blast a stretch of railway track, four kilometre from Mile station in Ramgarh district, on early Monday morning, police sources said here.

They blasted another stretch of railway track between Dania station in Bokaro district and Bihar’s Jageshwar station, disrupting train services on the two routes, the sources said.

The Maoists also warned the station master of Dania against movement of trains during the shutdown, and took away the keys of the railway crossing gate there, the police said.

Transporting of coal to different places has also been affected following the shutdown, the sources said.
