Sangeeta kumari alias Guddi, a 20-year-old teenage who hails from the Maoist-inflected village Sibil in Bihar, was allegedly killed by the Maoists all because the insurgents claimed that she did not mend her ways despite repeated warnings. The Maoists also accused her of spying for the police.

The victim was admitted or rather lured into the fugitive group at the young age of 11 with major involvement and help from her neighbor Savita Didi who was herself a Maoist leader. Sangeeta started off as a cook, but after about a year, she underwent arms training. After this, she served with the Maoists for 8 years. But, a change of heart coupled with a dream to build a better future encouraged Sangeeta to pursue education. As a result, she fled from the Maoists are to Gumla district in Jharkhand, and enrolled herself at a local school.

The courage to rid herself off the insurgents didn’t come easy as life threats became part of her daily routine. Although she didn’t give in to the fear she was always scared of the Maoists trying to abduct her.

According to a report by Hindustan Times (who contacted her when she was being threatened for her life),  Guddi was committed to studying and defied any chance to surrender, as it would then also put her family members into danger.

“I cannot surrender because the moment my leaders come to know, they will kill my parents and siblings,” she told Hindustan Times, on the condition that her story wouldn’t be published.

“I will be able to study as long as I am not identified and captured or my bosses in the jungle do not take me away forcibly,” she said.

It was the day when she visited her parents in Sibil that she was captured by the Maoist insurgents and was slaughtered. They left a handwritten note mentioning that she had to die as she didn’t change her mind despite repeated warnings.

A statement issued by the Gumla police read, “She was not our spy, and do we not know of any Maoist-related case against her name so far”. Her body was taken to the hospital by the local villagers (and not the Police officials, who were fear stricken of Maoists).


The Logical Indian Community treasures and appreciates the audacity of lion-hearted girls like Sangeeta who eventually chose the right path. Our society needs many more men and women, who can display the courage that Sangeeta did.
