Four Maoists surrender in Chhattisgarh
Raipur: Four Maoists, including a former commander of Jan Militia group, surrendered in Chhattisgarh`s Naxal-hit Kondagaon district, police said on Thursday.
The cadres were disappointed with "discrimination and exploitation by their seniors, particularly from Andhra Pradesh, in the outlawed outfit," Kondagaon Additional Superintendent of Police Surjit Atri said.
Sada Mandawi (34), former commander of Barda Jan Militia group, and squad members Dukalu (32), Shardu Kavde (22) and Manguram (32), all natives of Bade Dongar region, surrendered before the police last evening, Atri said.
They were involved in several criminal offences, including firing on police party, damage to government property, loot and kidnapping, he said.
As per their statements, they were forced to join the movement five years back. They also accused the senior ultras based in Andhra Pradesh of ill-treating the local cadres and thwarting development works in the region, he said.
They will be rehabilitated as per the state government`s policy, the ASP added.
