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.

The five have been identified as Suraj of Kaliapani village, Sanjur alias Selay of Baligotha village, Bijay (19) and his wife Lata of Kaliapani village, Tirky Tudu (18) of Malkangiri district.
