Gaya, Dec 28 (ANI): A group of 50 Maoists blasted a mobile tower in Gaya district of Bihar on Sunday instilling fear among villagers. In last five to six months, there has been an increase in the number of Maoists shunning extremist ideology and returning to civil society alleging exploitation at the hands of Maoists. The rebels have operated for decades across a wide swath of central and eastern India, and grew in strength during recent times in areas where poor, tribal villagers came into conflict with mining companies seeking resources for industrialisation.
