Surge in Maoists giving up arms as security forces tighten grip

May 05, 2024 08:31 AM IST

The surge has been prompted by security forces stepping up their operations against the insurgents after establishing camps in affected areas.

A large number of cadres are deserting the Communist Party of India (Maoist)-led insurgency fearing they will be killed or arrested in ground operations being carried out by security forces in Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, people familiar with the development said on Saturday.
