Two Naxals surrender in Andhra Pradesh
Visakhapatnam: Two key members of the banned outfit CPI (Maoists) surrendered before Superintendent of Police Vikram Jeet Duggal and Officer on Special Duty (Operations) A R Damodhar at Narsipatnam in the district on Thursday.
Duggal said that G Chinnam Naidu of Cheedigondi village under G K Veedhi mandal, who carried a cash reward of Rs one lakh over his head, and Vanthala Chando alias Santi, native of Kindangi village under Koyyuru mandal, surrendered as they were disillusioned with the Naxal movement.
Duggal said that on April 26, 2004, Maoists conducted a raid and looted Naidu`s house, and later pressurised him to join the movement.
He joined in 2005, and trained under `military action committee commander` Jambri. But recently, Jambri started abusing him, and the two fell out.
In Chando`s case, she was attracted to Naxalism three years ago when her parents were trying to marry her off against her wishes. She joined Jambri`s team and subsequently moved to Korukona dalam.
But the hardship of the life in the jungle, which involved marching long distances without rest and food, led to disillusionment.
Both were involved in a few Naxal attacks.
