Armed activists of proscribed Communist Party of India-Maoist blasted a community centre, a government school building and panchayat bhavan at Chakrbanda village in Bihar's naxal-infested Gaya district on Monday, police said.

Over one hundered ultras stormed the village and triggered dynamite blasts demolishing the three government buildings in the wee hours, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Magadh Range) A S Nilekar told PTI.

No casualties were reported as no no body was present inside the buildings at the time of attack, the Nilekar said. Raids were being carried out at different places in theĀ  district to track down the miscreants, he said.
