Nuapada: A cadre Maoist with gun and live bullet surrendered before Malkangiri police today. The surrendered Maoist is Parsuram Dharua alias Mantu of Karipani village under Borden block in Nuapada district, SP Smita P Parmar informed.
He was initially working as a militia in Mounapur-Nupapada division of Maoists since 2014. Later, he worked as an active cadre in the group.
Frustrated over the torture of senior Telugu cadres in the group and being inspired by the government assistance policy, he wanted to shun ties with the rebel organisation.
With a gun and 15 bullets, he surrendered before the SP.
He was involved in several violent activities, the SP said.
