In Chhattisgarh, 32 Maoists have surrendered at Dantewada in Bastar division. Six of them were carrying rewards on their head.

Dantewada SP Abhishek Pallava said, the surrendered Maoists were influenced by the ‘Lon Varratu’ campaign being carried out by the police in the district. ‘Lon Varratu’ means ‘Return Home’ in the local tribal dialect Gondi.

Under this campaign, the police have earmarked about 50 hypersensitive Maoist-affected villages, where pamphlets have been put up with an appeal to surrender. The SP said, so far 150 Maoists have surrendered under the ‘Lon Varratu’ campaign.
