India's extreme left-wing rebels Tuesday set ablaze a rail office in the northern state of Bihar and blew up block offices and telecom towers, reported the semi-official Press Trust of India.

In a midnight attack, around 150 rebels stormed Banshipur railway station in an section under the East Central Railway in Bihar, and torched a railway panel room besides destroying the traffic control system, said the report quoting railway officials.

The rebels Monday blew up a stretch of railway track and set ablaze three trucks in Jharkhand, central India.

The rebels, also known as Naxals, were staging a two-day strike protesting government crack-down on the rebellion.
