A woman Maoist, who spent two years with a guerrilla squad and had taken part in two ultra operations, has surrendered, police said on Tuesday.
The Maoist, 18-year-old Lilmuni from Babuhan Tola of Sangrampur village under Gola police station had joined the Maoists with whom she spent two years in Ramgarh-Hazaribagh area, Ramgarh Superintendent of Police Hemant Toppo told the news agency.
"She mustered courage and established contact with the police a few days ago, before surrendering yesterday," he said.
Toppo said she was initially hesitant to approach the force as she was told by the ultras that the police would deal sternly with her as she had taken part in their operations.
She did not turn in any weapon, he said.
Lilumoni who was known as Namita among the Maoists said she missed her family after joining the banned outfit.
The SP said according to her some minor girls were also with the Maoists and they were afraid to leave.
Stating that security would be provided to her, Toppo said, she would receive Rs 30,000 immediately, and another Rs 2.5 lakh after approval by the resettlement committee.
Besides, she would get a plot of land and a house under Indira Awas Yozana. She might also get a job in the home guards or in any other department, he said.
She would receive free legal aid for cases she was involved in.
