Eleven Naxals on Wednesday surrendered in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh. Two surrendered Naxalities carried a bounty of Rs 8 lakh each on their heads.
Naxals surrendered in front of Superintendent of Police (SP) Abhishek Meena along with their arms. Amongst the 11 Naxals, three were women.
Earlier, mass militia commander JRD Jenny Sambhau had surrendered with one country made gun before the Central Reserve Police Force’s (CRPF's) 80th Battalion in Jagdalpur, while five Naxalites surrendered in Bijapur earlier in April.
Sambhu, a naxalite who was a comrade of Ramesh Poyum Gupiyapal Jumililia, was involved in several Naxalite incidents including the Jharkhati ambush attack. Sambhu carried a bounty of Rs 1 lakh on his head.
In March this year, 33 naxals surrendered before the Jagdalpur police, whereas two Naxalites were nabbed by the Bijapur police. Out of the 33 Naxalites who surrendered before the Inspector-General and SP, 29 were males and four were females. (ANI)
