MAOIST SANYASI SURRENDERS BEFORE B’NGIR COPS
Sunday, 20 November 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
A hardcore Maoist, Sanyasi Sagaria, surrendered before Balangir SP Ashis Singh and CRPF 189 Battalion in-charge Jitendra Kumar here on Friday.
Sanyasi, a resident of Nagphenea village under Tureikela police station, was forced to join the Maoist organisation in 2005 by Maoist cadre Sanjeeb. He worked in Bargarh-Balangir-Mahas Amund division and was operating in Tureikela, Lathore and Khaprakhol Police station area. He was collecting information on contractors, labour sardars and movement of security forces, said Singh at a Press meet here.
The SP said Sanyasi had been handling a 12-bore gun and, during his stay in the party, he had met some senior party cadres of the division. He left the party due to mental and physical harassment meted out to him by senior cadres, said Singh. He was also involved in the recent exchange of fire with security forces in Chandali Reserve Forest on August 13, Singh informed, adding “Sanyasi will get all the benefits as per the Government guidelines.”
However, Sanyasi didn’t reply to mediapersons who wanted to know how he became a Maoist and how he was being tortured in the Maoist camp.
