aiminggunsPoliceman ‘surrenders’ before Maoists
The constable was harassed by senior officers, says CPI(Maoist) Amid claims by the Bastar Police that hundreds of Maoists have surrendered in the past year, a “reverse surrender” of a police constable has taken place, the CPI (Maoist) has said. “Michche Vadda, 37, a police constable posted in the Farasgav police station of Narayanpur, has surrendered before the Kutul area Janatana Sarkar of the CPI (Maoist). He worked for the police for more than 10 years since 2005. He was being harassed by his senior officers and was pained over the continuous atrocities by security forces on the tribal people in Bastar,” said a statement issued by Rajmand Mandavi, secretary of the Mad divisional committee of the outlawed CPI (Maoist). Mr. Vadda went missing on March 13 on a visit to his village Kutul.
The police believed that he had been “abducted.” However, the Maoists claimed that he had surrendered “willingly” with his wife Manju on March 29. “Vadda had run away from his village in 2005 and joined the police as a Gopniya Sainik (secret agent). He was promoted as an auxiliary constable and then as a constable. “Police killed his cousin Rainu and his friend Samalu in a fake encounter in 2007. His brother Karia Vadda, who was also working with the police, was found dead under suspicious circumstances in the Kakdazor police camp,” the Maoist leader said. Vadda’s senior, Mandavi said, asked him to join the DRG (District Reserve Group) of the police, but he refused. “Angered by this, the senior started harassing Vadda’s wife Manju. Vadda was deeply hurt … Ultimately, he came back to his village and surrendered before us,” he said. Narayanpur SP Amit Kamble did not respond to calls from The Hindu.

Underage marriages low in Chhattisgarh`s Naxal hit areas
RAIPUR: Defying the national trend of 33% of women getting married before the age of 18 years, the hotbeds of Naxalism in Chattissgarh – Bastar, Bijapur and Narayanpur – have less than one-fourth (25%) of women tying the knot before their legal age. Contrary to the general perception that underage marriages are more prevalent in tribal societies, but Naxal affected areas of the state have lesser number of girls marrying before the age of 18 years even when compared to the urban cities of Chhattisgarh like Raipur and Drug.
While the latest census report 2011 reveals that across the country almost one-third of women (33%) get married before the age of 18 years, in Chhattisgarh the number of such girls over 38%. Interestingly this figure is much higher in Durg where 44.7% of women tie the knot before the legal age of 18 years. In comparison, Raipur is lower at 36. 8% but if compared to the national average, its high. In contrast, the Naxal affected and tribal dominated areas of Bijapur, Bastar and Naryanpur have far less number of women getting married before the age of 18 years. The figure is the lowest in Bijapur where only 12. 27% girls married before their legal age. The figures in Bastar and Narayanpur are 22.2% and 17. 45% respectively. As far as males are concerned, in Chhattisgarh 9.74% married before the age of 18. This figure is higher than the national average of 6%. The legal age of marriage of for males is 21 years.
Here too, the cities surpass the tribal areas with higher percentage of boys getting married before attaining the age of 18 years. While the figures in Raipur and Durg are 8.28% and 12.5% respectively, the Naxal affected areas of Bastar, Bijapur and Naryanpur are much lower at 3. 42%, 2.26% and 2.60% respectively.
