Three Maoists

MALKANGIRI: Three hardcore Maoists surrendered before Malkangiri SP Mitrabhanu Mahapatra and SDPO Sandeep Sampad at the District Police Office here on Monday.

The Maoists including a woman cadre were involved in 29 cases of murder, landmine blasts, attack on police and  other offences, said the SP while producing them before the mediapersons. The Maoists were identified as Irma Kawasi (28), Bhime Madhi alias Radhika (19) and Erra Madkami. Each of them carried a cash reward of ` one lakh as announced by Odisha Government.

While Kawasi was involved in the attack on a convoy of Congress leaders in Jirom Ghat of Chhattisgarh in 2013, the other two were active in Kalimela of Malkangiri, the SP said.

The Red ultras decided to surrender as they were disillusioned with the banned outfit and realised that their leaders had deviated from the Maoist ideology, Mahapatra said. They will be rehabilitated suitably in accordance with the State Government’s surrender policy, he added.
