A mass militia commander JRD Jenny Sambhau surrendered with one country made gun before the CRPF’s 80th Battalion in Jagdalpur, while five naxalites surrendered in Bijapur on Friday.
Sambhu, a naxalite who was a comrade of Ramesh Poyum Gupiyapal Jumililia, was involved several naxalite incidents including the Jharkhati ambush attack.
Sambhu is carried a bounty of Rs. one lakh over his head. In March this year, thirty-three naxals surrendered before the Jagdalpur police, whereas two naxalites were nabbed by the Bijapur police.
Out of the thirty-three Naxalites who surrendered before the Inspector-General (IG) and Superintendent of Police (SP), twenty-nine are males and 4 females.
However, with a motive to enlighten children in naxal-affected areas of Jharkhand’s Palamau district, Jharkhand Police has initiated Tare Zameen Par program to encourage children to lead happy lives. In January this year, Jharkhand police used light aircraft to drop pamphlets over naxal affected areas to increase the awareness among them. -(KK, MR) – AGENCIES
