Sixty-two “hardcore Naxals” have surrendered before security forces in Chhattisgarh. The development has been described as a “huge achievement” by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. They were working under the Kutul area committee of the CPI (Maoist).

          “The surrender of such a large group of Naxals is definitely a positive development and it will have a psychological impact on the Maoist cadre,” he said, adding that more Naxals were expected to surrender in the coming days.

          Polling for the 90-seat Chhattisgarh Assembly is scheduled to be held in two phases — on November 12 for 18 seats and on November 20 for 72 constituencies. Most of the constituencies in the first phase fall in the Bastar region. The Naxals have called for a poll boycott.
