As many as 62 Maoists surrendered with 51 rifles before the police in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh on Tuesday.

These Maoists were surrendered at Narayanpur district before IG Bastar range Vivekananda Sinha and other senior police officers. 

The surrendered rebels were active in Tumeradi area.

According to police officials, these rebels showed their willingness to give up Naxal ideology and return to the political mainstream. 

Police officials said that the surrendered Maoists will be provided necessary assistance as per the rehabilitation policy of the state government.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the government’s surrender policy is pushing the Left Wing Extremist (LWE) cadre to shun the path of violence.

Expressing happiness over a large number of Left Wing Extremists surrendering before the Police in Chhattisgarh, the Union Home Minister hoped that other such operatives will also abjure violence and join the mainstream. 

He congratulated Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, the DGP and the police force for this achievement.

Mr. Singh said, these surrenders clearly indicate that the Chhattisgarh government is effectively pursuing a surrender and rehabilitation policy for LWE operatives and it is positively changing the security environment of the state in a big way.
