BHUBANESWAR: Just who are the eight Maoists being swapped? Some are big fish and once carried rewards. Some were simple cadre members.

The two major names among the eight are Murla Neelam Reddy and his wife Setu Pangi, both belonging to East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. Members of the Central Regional Commission of the Andhra Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee (AOBSZC). They were  nabbed by Odisha police on November 10, 2010. While Neelam Reddy is 26 years old, his wife Setu, alias Busha alias Sunita, is 22. Both carried rewards on their heads announced by the Andhra Police which had tipped off their Odisha counterpart.

 Subhashree Panda, alias Mili Panda, wife of Sabyasachi Panda, secretary of the Odisha Organising Committee of the CPI (Maoist). Arrested in January 2010 on charges of being a Maoist operative, she was set to be freed last year in October after the Orissa High Court rejected cases filed against her under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act but was re-arrested by the police in another case. Subhashree’s trial is underway in a Rayagada court which will deliver judgment on April 10.
