The police said they suspect that Maoists blew up the culvert on Bhadrachalam-Charla road in the early hours and said the nature of explosive used was under investigation. "There is no impact of bandh in the state. Except the incident (blasting of culvert), no other untoward incident has been reported," Warangal Zone Inspector General of Police Y Nagireddy told news agency PTI.
