A woman Maoist, who was carrying a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh on her head, surrendered before police along with her two-month-old daughter in Rayagada district on Thursday.
The 27-year-old Parvati alias Rinki, a resident of Bijapur of Chhattisgarh, was a member of the outlawed CPI(Maoist). She was also a member of the Indravati Dalam and Ghumsara Dalam of Bansadhara-Ghumsara-Nagavali Division of CPI(Maoist).
In her statement, Rinki alleged that the other Maoists abandoned her in a forest when she became pregnant. She further said that she chose to break her eight-year-long association with the Maoist movement after she realised that the Red rebels neither do anything good for tribals nor for their own comrades. Besides, she alleged gender discrimination by the ultras. Police said that Rinki was involved the killing of two civilians and a District Voluntary Force (DVF) Jawan in Kalahandi and Rayagada districts in 2018 and 2019. She was also involved in three firing incidents in Rayagada and another in Kalahandi district between 2013 and 2019.
