Six naxals surrender in Chhattisgarh

Six Naxals collectively carrying a reward of Rs 15 lakh on their heads, surrendered in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district on Friday, a police official said. Surrendered cadres are also being provided skill development training in different disciplines for their rehabilitation, the official said.

The cadres, including two couples, turned themselves in before the police and the CRPF officials here citing that they were impressed by the police's rehabilitation drive 'LonVarratu' and disappointed with the ''hollow'' Maoist ideology, Dantewada Superintendent of Police Abhishek Pallava said.

Of the six cadres, Kamlu alias Santosh Podiam (25), a member of platoon number 16 in the Indravati area committee of Maoists, and his wife Payke Kowasi (22), in-charge of Maddivision's tailoring team, were carrying a reward of Rs 3 lakh each on their heads, he said.

Similarly, Linga Ram Uikey (36), a supply team member, and his wife Bhume Uikey (28), a member of platoon no. 26, carried a reward of Rs 2 lakh each, he said. These four Naxals were active in the banned outfit for the last 15 years in various capacities, he said.

The two couples in their statement also said that they decided to escape from their units after they felt that there was a threat to their lives by senior cadres who had expressed doubt over their allegiance towards the banned outfit without any reason, he said.
