08:28, December 05, 2011

NEW DELHI, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- Leftwing rebels Sunday blew up railway tracks in the central Indian state Jharkhand, one day after killing 11 people including six policemen in the same state, reported Press Trust of India.

The Naxal rebels also set afire a mobile tower in eastern state of Bihar's Aurangabad district on the first day of a two-day country-wide shutdown to protest the killing of their top leader Kishenji by government forces in West Bengal.

The rebels used landmines and rifles in attacking the convoy of an Indian national lawmaker on Saturday, killing 11, including an eight-year-old boy in the Latehar district of Jharkhand. They also took away a number of firearms and ammunitions from the convoy, according to police.

They triggered an IED to blow up tracks between Gomia and Dumri railway stations in Bokaro district and tracks between Hehegara and Chhipadohar railway stations in Latehar district of the state on Sunday, according to the report.

The Naxal rebels are active in about 10 Indian states attacking government forces and targets. They are described as the biggest threat to internal security by the Indian government.
