Woman Maoist surrenders in Odisha
Dhenkanal: A woman Maoist, allegedly involved in the killing of a forest department official, Tuesday surrendered before police in Odisha`s Dhenkanal district.
The rebel, identified as Sambari Tiria (26), is the mother of a baby girl. She was allegedly involved in the Naxal attack on Kandar Forest Beat House on January 31, 2007 which claimed the life of a forest official.
"Accompanied by her husband and baby, Tiria surrendered before the police. Her case will be recommended for due compensation under the state government`s Maoists` surrender policy," Dhenkanal SP Manoranjan Mohanty said.
Though Tiria confirmed the killing was a handiwork of Maoists, she denied her involvement in the incident, police said.
