Buddhist monks offer prayers for victims of recent Maoist attack

by Ani 1:26 mins

Buddhist monks in the holy town of Bodh Gaya in Bihar organized a special prayer session, in wake of the recent killing of at least 19 people by the rebels. Scores of monks from across the country gathered and chanted mantras at the Mahabodhi temple where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment. In an ambush attack on the night of May 25, the rebels felled trees to block the 20-car convoy and then detonated a landmine and raked the vehicles with gunfire. Among those killed was Mahendra Karma, a senior Congress leader from Chhattisgarh who founded an anti-Maoist group and was believed to be the main target of the attack.
