Sambalpur: Two young girls who had joined the Maoist cadres surrendered along with their arms here yesterday night. They had joined Maoist cadres in 2005 and were promised a lot. “But we found a totally different atmosphere in the camps,” said both the girls while talking to reporters after laying down their arms. “The only job of top cadre Maoists is to extort the rich and kill innocent people who dare to protest their illegal activities,” they added.
The girls who surrendered before police yesterday night were Miss Scholestica Minz alias Sujata (24) daughter of Lucas Minz of village Mendhiakani and Miss Rashmita Nayak alias Kabita of Jadagola village. Both the girls belong to Deogarh district, the SP of Sambalpur Mr Sanjaya Kumar said.
The girls had expressed their willingness to surrender through the OIC of Sadar police station Mr Manas Garnaik.
Accordingly arrangements were made to enable them to surrender smoothly, informed the SP. “The girls would be properly rehabilitated with adequate safety for then,” said the collector of Sambalpur, Mr LN Nayak who was also present in the said press conference. It is worth mentioning that few days back another cadre girl Miss Dipti Nayak also surrendered before the police.
