As many as 106 members of the Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangha (CMAS) surrendered before the Narayanpatna police on Tuesday.

Police said 84 tribals of Upper Lacha village and 22 tribals of Baringi under Bargi panchayat decided to give up arms and join mainstream.

These CMAS members were involved in many criminal activities in the area, particularly in Maoist-related violence at Narayanpatna and Bandhugam.

Over 500 CMAS members from Bargi, Langalbeda, Padapadar, Bijapur, Naryanpatana and Bandhugam have surrendered in the last two months.
