Patna: The Bihar government’s principal secretary for the Cabinet Coordination Committee, Brajesh Mehrotra, has announced the approval of a new surrender and rehabilitation policy for Maoists.
In an interaction with the media shortly after Maoists had killed seven policemen in a landmine blast in the state’s Aurangabad District on Tuesday, Mehrotra said Rs. 2.5 lakhs would be given to top leaders, who renounced arms.
He said this amount would be extended to all Maoists – be they members of state, regional, central committees, or politbureau members, who surrender.
