BHUBANESWAR - Two Maoist guerrillas surrendered in Gajapati district of Orissa Thursday, police said.
Nahu Majhi (alias Ranjit), 21, and Maja Majhi (alias Terena), 25, laid down arms in the district headquarters of Paralakhemundi, about 350 km from state capital Bhubaneswar, superintendent of police Sanjeev Arora told IANS.
A pistol and five bullets were recovered from them, he added.
They said both of them surrendered because the ultras had distanced themselves from their ideology, Arora said.
The duo was involved in several Maoist activities in Adaba area of the district for the past five years. One of them was also involved in the attack in Nayagarh district in 2008, where 13 policemen were killed, Arora said.
