New Delhi: In a significant success for the security forces in the Left-Wing Extremism (LWE) affected areas, 34 Naxals including four carrying a reward of Rs. one lakh have surrendered in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma.

All 34 Naxals surrendered before the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Chhattisgarh Police Force at different places in Sukma on Tuesday.

“Of the total, 33 Naxals surrendered in a recently established camp in the Dubbamarka area located in the deeply forested regions of Sukma,” CRPF said.

“The surrendered Naxals included Dirdo Muda, Hidma, and Vajaam Hidma who carried a reward of Rs one lakh on their heads. These Naxals who were earlier misled decided to abjure violence and return to the mainstream.”

It has just been three days since the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Chhattisgarh Police laid out the camp in Dubbamarka, added the CRPF. In another significant success, the efforts of the 201 CoBRA Battalion of the CRPF convinced the surrender of another Rs 1 lakh rewardee Naxal Madvi Vaga in Sukma. He was a Janmilitia Commander and had joined the Naxalism in 2016 and was active in Chintalnar and Jagargunda area, said the force.

“Sustained and planned operations by the security forces and Chhattisgarh police in the left-wing extremism-affected areas in the state have resulted in the apprehension of several top Maoist leaders and many have surrendered. Additionally, the security forces have been persuading the Maoist cadres to give up the path of violence and return to the mainstream,” CRPF said.

CRPF is engaged in internal security duty in LWE-affected areas and Jammu and Kashmir.
