This takes the number of Naxals who quit the movement and surrendered in Bastar region of the state this month to 28. Some of them are of the commander-rank; twenty of them surrendered in Kondagaon district alone.

All of them were active in the Naxal movement for the last about ten years and were involved in blasts, attacks on government installations, arson, etc, Atri told PTI.
He said these cadres claimed that senior Naxal leaders from Andhra Pradesh sexually exploited the tribal women and girls, and also extorted money from the locals.
