Maoist guerrillas blew up a four-meter long rail track in Giridih district of Jharkhand, India early on Wednesday.
Police enforced a 24-hour shutdown. About 20 rebels of the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) blasted the rail track between Hazaribagh Road and Parasnath railway stations.
The blast affected rail traffic in the Grand Chord section of Jharkhand, the main line that connects eastern and northern India. Eight trains have been cancelled while seven have been diverted.
