With 43 Naxals surrendering which includes 9 women cadres, a total of 176 Naxals have so far quit the violence in the district under the ‘Puna Narkom‘ campaign launched in August this year.
A total of 43 Naxals, including 9 women cadres, surrendered before the police in Chhattisgarh’s worst Maoist-hit Sukma district on Wednesday.
Podiami Lakshman, a militia commander carrying a reward of Rs.1 lakh on his head, was among those who surrendered before the police.
The Superintendent of Police Sunil Sharma said, “The surrendered ultras were “impressed” by the district police’s rehabilitation drive for Naxals called ‘Puna Narkom’ (a term coined in local Gondi dialect which means New Dawn).”
The surrendered Naxals will be provided with facilities as per the Surrender and Rehabilitation Policy of the Chhattisgarh government.
The 43 cadres belonging to ten villages of the Sukma district turned themselves in before senior police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officials in Sukma town citing disappointment with “inhuman” and “hollow” Maoist ideology, Sukma Superintendent of Police Sunil Sharma told PTI.
He further said that amongst them were active members of the militia and Dandakaranya Adivasi Kisan Mazdoor Sangthan (DAKMS), Krantikari Mahila Adivasi Sangthan (KAMS), Chetna Natya Mandli (CNM) – all the frontal wings of Maoists, in different areas of the south Bastar.
