Twenty three Maoists, including two women, surrendered in Bastar district of Chhattisgarh on Sunday citing “ill-treatment” by senior cadres, police said.

The ultras turned themselves in before senior police officials, saying they were “frustrated” with the ill-treatment meted out to them, Bastar superintendent of police RN Dash told PTI.

Of them, three cadres - Katku (Kudur Janatana Sarkar head), Lali Mandavi and Raju Mandavi (area committee members), carried a reward of Rs three lakh each on their heads.

Similarly, Kawasi Gore (35) who was the head of Chetna Natya Mandli (CNM) -- a cultural outfit of the Maoists -- carried a reward of Rs one lakh on his head, the SP said, adding the rest of the surrendered ultras were lower-rung members.

An encouragement amount of Rs 10,000 was given to each of them and will be given facilities under the surrender and rehabilitation policy, the official said.
