Ranchi, April 14: Maoists have torched 12 vehicles involved in road construction work in Jharkhand's Palamau district, the state police said on Friday.

Refusal by the construction company to pay them a 'levy' is said to have caused the Maoists to torch the vehicles.

More than 25 vehicles have been burnt to ashes by the Maoists in 2017.

Last year in December, Maoists torched earth-movers and dozens of trucks owned by a private company around the Surjagarh mines in Maharashtra's forested Gadchiroli district
