Rajnandgaon: A 22-year-old woman naxalite has surrendered before police in Rajnandgaon district of Chhattisgarh as she was fed up of "ill treatment" of women in Naxal camps by senior cadres.
"Mankay alias Rukmi of Madanwada Dalam had expressed her desire to join the mainstream and laid down her arms yesterday in Devkonde village of the district," Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Shukla told a news agency on Thursday.
She surrendered along with two muzzle loading guns before the joint party of District Police Force and Border Security Force following a search operation in the region.
Mankay had joined the Naxal movement in 2005 and was working on expansion of Maoist propaganda while working with `Natyamandli` group of the outlaws, he said.
She told police that women in Naxal camp were being ill treated and even she was disappointed by the "high handedness" of senior cadres.
The surrendered Naxals will be given assistance as per rehabilitation policy of Chhattisgarh government, the SP said.
