Rayagada, Mar 24: Two hardcore Maoists carrying the cash reward on their heads surrendered before Rayagada police on Wednesday.
The Red rebels have been identified as Manku Oyam and Lachhu Madakam of Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh.
Manku Oyam and Lachhu Madakam, carrying Rs 4 lakh and 2 lakh rewards on their heads, respectively surrendered before the police.
Both the rebels were involved in several Maoist violence incidents in Rayagada and Kalahandi district.
The main reason both wanted to join the mainstream was that they realised about the futility of violent path of Naxalism and the rapid development works in the locality attracted them to return to the mainstream society.
The SP welcomed them to the mainstream of the society and assured her of all possible supports from the Government and also police administration for their rehabilitation. The declared reward will be given to them as the surrender was a voluntary surrender.
