Maoist surrenders in West Bengal under rehab package

Almost a month after the West Bengal government notified a surrender policy for Maoists in the state, a senior Naxal commander, Sobhan Karak of the Gaoltore squad, surrendered at the Midnapore police lines on Thursday. He surrendered with a single barrel gun and 14 rounds of ammunition to the Superintendent of Police, West Midnapore, Manoj Verma. The police officials are hoping that the incident would inspire other rebels to surrender.
