RAIPUR: Six naxals, including a commander with a bounty of Rs 3 lakh, on Friday surrendered in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Kanker district, said police.

The cadres, one of them a woman, turned themselves in at the district headquarters before Kanker Superintendent of Police M L Kotwani, citing disappointment with "hollow" Maoist ideology and violence.

Those who surrendered were identified as Bislal alias Sukhdev Hidko (28), Shamlal alias Kara Komra, Dhaniram Dugga, Budhram Kowasi (24), Mahesh Kumar (35) and Pushpa Anchla (24), said Kotwani. 

Of them, Sukhdev, commander of section B under military platoon no 33, is a key Maoist member in the region carrying a reward of Rs 3 lakh, he said.

While Pushpa was active as a member of Chetna Natya Manch (CNM) - the cultural wing of the Maoists, three others were jan-militia members, the SP added.

The rebels expressed their willingness to join the mainstream claiming that they were fed up with the banned outfit’s hollow ideology, violence and wrong policies and at the same time impressed by the state’s surrender policy, he said.

They will be provided assistance according to the rehabilitation policy of the government, said Kotwani.
