Jajpur: Five Maoists on Saturday
surrendered before the police in Orissa`s Jajpur district,
police said.

Led by Suraj alias Jandhar Hembram, `Area Commander`
of Kalinganagar, the rebels appeared before the police,
expressing their intention to abjure violence, D S Kuttey,
Superintendent of Police said.

The Maoists were involved in several crimes in the
district, he said.

Police said the ultras decided to give up arms as they
were disillusioned with the activities of Maoists.

village, Sanjur alias Selay of Baligotha village, Bijay (19)
and his wife Lata of Kaliapani village, Tirky Tudu (18) of
