Police are on their toes following news about possible surrender of the most wanted Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangha leader, Nachika Linga, after a tribal rally in Narayanpatna on Tuesday.

According to reports, news about possible surrender by Nachika before the district police gained ground after his fresh statement appealing to the evacuees of Narayanpatna to stay back besides assuring them that the CMAS activists would not harm anyone.

Linga further clarified that CMAS opposed landlords, mafia and liquor barons in the area engaged in grabbing tribal property and was not against the people. Though the massage elicited little response with people evacuating the villages alleging CMAS atrocity, another call by the CMAS leader for maintaining peace raised hopes of his possible surrender.

Police sources said as many as 20 cases had been pending against Linga and they have been trailing him for the last two years.

“We have been getting reports about his possible surrender but are still unsure,” said a senior police officer.
