Raipur: A dreaded woman Maoist, carrying a reward of Rs 8 lakh on her head, surrendered in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district on Sunday, police said.

Associated with the outlawed CPI (Maoist) since 2010, Sita was actively working as a member of 2nd battalion of Mad Uttar Bastar Division in Naxal-den Abhujmad, he said.

She had been involved in several incidents of crime in the region, he said.

The surrendered rebel will be rehabilitated as per the policy of the state government, he added.
