A total of 122 Maoist insurgents, including 11 women, surrendered on Saturday in Dornapal in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district, police said.
The rebels surrendered in the presence of Bastar Inspector General of Police S.R.P. Kalluri, Sukma collector Niraj Kumar Bansod, Sukma Superintendent of Police D. Shravan Kumar and Bastar Superintendent of Police R.N. Das.
This was one of the biggest surrenders in recent times—due to the pressure exerted by security forces, and rehabilitation schemes of the government.
