Adivasi group questions Maoist surrender claims
…However, the Adivasi Mahasabha, the Congress and the CPI have raised questions over the recent arrests and surrenders. “The Bastar police arrested Manjhiram Kashyap and Sukhdev Nag from Tahakwada on August 25 and claimed that the two were involved in the Jiram Ghati attack on the Congress convoy last year. But Kashyap suffers from physical disability due to an accident three years ago and Sukhdev was already interrogated by the NIA for the Jiram attack and it found him not guilty,” said Manish Kunjam, former MLA and president of the Adivasi Mahasabha, in a letter to the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister. State Congress president Bhupesh Baghel also questioned the spate of surrenders.
“Innocent tribals are being forced to surrender by the police just to win praise from their seniors and the media. Police claimed that two hardcore Maoists, Chaitram Salam and his wife Manjula, surrendered before them but the fact is that Manjula was working as a cook before the so-called surrender,” Mr. Baghel told reporters in Raipur.
