Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel's call for going tougher on surrendered Maoists sparks debate in the state

"There should be a relook at the surrender and rehabilitation policy for Maoists," Baghel said during his speech, according to the report.
"There are many Naxals who are of the rank of Central Committee, who have been involved in violent activities for 25-35 years, (and) surrender because they are unwell or getting old. Because of the present policy, they escape any punishment," Baghel added.
Although the Centre and the state's policies on the rehabilitation of Maoists do not legally dismiss pending cases upon their surrender, they are rarely followed up. This is because the surrendered Maoists often insist on staying out of jail, the report states.
