RANCHI: A hardcore Naxalite carrying a bounty of Rs 25 lakh surrendered in Jharkhand's Palamau district on Thursday.

A statement issued by the police said that Kamlesh Ganjhu alias Birsai surrendered before Palamau Range Commissioner Manoj Kumar and Deputy Inspector General of Police Vipul Shukla.
