Rourkela: Frustrated with Maoists’ approach of killing innocent people, a couple, both armed cadres of CPI(Maoist), surrendered before SP Rourkela and Commandant, 19BN CRPF today.
The couple is identified as Raju Kayam alias Sambar and Anita Marla alias Kalpana. Both were involved in the Left Wing Extremism and active in Saranda and Odisha-Jharkhand borders.
Raju alias Sambar is a native Kadamdihi village under Goilkera police limits in Jharkhand whereas Anita alias Kalpana hails from Goilkera, West Singhbhum in Jharkhand.
In 2017, the couple had left the Maoists organization after being fed up with the Maoist ideology and wanted to live a peaceful life.
The couple expressed their willingness to join the mainstream and appealed other red rebels to shun the path of violence and work for the country’s development.
