Four Maoists surrender before AP police
Hyderabad: Four top Maoists, two of them active in Maharashtra state, surrendered before the Andhra Pradesh police here on Tuesday.
All the four underground Maoists, including a couple hailing from Adilabad in the state, involved in various offences gave up before the Additional Director General of Police M Ratan (Law and Order).
"Maddela Adellu alias Ananda, a Maharashtra State Committee (MCM) member carried a reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head, while his wife Kurma Rambai alias Saritha carried a reward of Rs three lakh," Additional DGP Ratan told reporters.
Ananda was involved in nine offences, including four exchanges of fire, one ambush, two murders and a lorry-burning case in Maharashtra, he said, adding that the surrendered Maoist was promoted as alternative state committee member of Maharashtra state committee in 2006.
Two other Maoists who surrendered to police were Killo Raju alias Chkkudu Raju and Sreendri Subba Rao alias Srikanth, both tribals and native of Kannavaram village in Visakhapatnam district.
While Killo Raju, commander of Kannavaram picket militia carried a reward of Rs one lakh, Srikanth, deputy commander carried a reward of Rs 50,00, Ratan said.
As per information, there were 370 Maoists in the state and half of them were operating their activities in neighbouring states, Ratan said.
Surrendered-Maoist Ananda told reporters that he worked in the party for 20 years and was "now frustrated over the stalemate in the party activities in Maharashtra state for a long period."
Responding to a query, Ananda said, "I have lost faith in the Maoist ideology and have decided to spent my remaining life with my family."
