They were active in Abhujmad area, considered to be a Maoist den, around 300 kms away from Raipur. The programme was attended by a large number of villagers from Abhujmad who took pledge not to support Maoists and chanted slogans against them, the SP said.

“Villagers are getting increasingly fed up with violent Maoist activities and want to see development in Abhujmad,” the SP said.

Expressing their desire to join the mainstream, the surrendered cadres said they were frustrated with “continuous exploitation, atrocities and violence by Naxals”, he claimed.

The surrendered cadres are from 24 villages of the region including Gumiyabeda, Okpaad, Mohndi, Nelnaar, Ikpaad, Murnaar, Nirameta and Kodkanaar, he added.

Inspector General of Police (Bastar Range) SRP Kalluri and other officials were present on the occasion.
