Gaya: Maoists blew up a solar power plant in Bihar’s Gaya district, damaging its control room and workers’ accommodation unit, a police officer said Tuesday.
Apparently irked over non-payment of levy, the Maoists detonated an Improvised Explosive Device in the premises of the Tata Power-owned solar power plant yesterday night, Assistant Superintendent of Police Arun Kumar Singh said.
The control room and workers’ accommodation unit of the plant were gutted, he said.
A case was lodged and raids were on to nab the culprits, he said.
Tata Power produces 30 MW solar energy from its plant here and provides it to Sherghati sub-division. PTI
