No Naxal surrenders as deadline ends

MANGALORE: There was no word of any Naxal surrender as the week-long ceasefire announced by the state government against the Left wing renegades ended at 6pm on Sunday.

Anti-Naxal Force (ANF) Inspector-General of Police Alok Kumar told TOI that they will have a meeting on Monday with the top brass and decide on the future course of action. “As of now we have not heard from them. We don’t know what their demands are,” Alok added.

Chief minister Jagadish Shettar on Saturday last had announced that ANF and the local police would suspend all ongoing combing operations against Naxalites and give them an opportunity to surrender.
