A group of armed Maoists allegedly torched at least five vehicles and some road construction machines in Odisha's Kalahandi district, the police said on Wednesday.

The incident occurred at Nuamunda village in the district where the construction work on a road between Urladani and Lahadi was going on under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), the police said.

On Tuesday night, the Maoists raided the site camp of the contractor engaged in the construction and opposed the building of the road.

Thereafter, the Maoists allegedly set five tractors and some machines on fire, the police said, adding that a search operation has been launched in the nearby forest to nab the Maoists.
