Hardcore Maoist, over 100 sympathizers surrender in Odisha

Malkangiri, Sep 01 (ANI): A hardcore Maoist, along with 100 families supporting the rebels, surrendered before police in Malkangiri district of Odisha. The ultra has been identified as Messi Meska.

He was involved in many crimes and had a cash price of rupees one lakh on his head. The Maoist sympathizers reportedly informed the police that they were forced to support the red rebels due to their fear but later realised that development work was being hampered due to their activities.

The Maoists, also known as 'Naxals' in India, seek the violent overthrow of the Indian state and have fought authorities for decades, particularly in rural areas of central and eastern India where they enjoy some support.
