Rourkela: A Jharkhandi woman Maoist cadre, carrying a reward of Rs 1 lakh, today surrendered before the Odisha police.

Police said the Jharkhandi woman cadre was Palo Honhanga (42) from Baliba village under Chotanagara police limits in West Singhbhum district of Jharkhand.

She had joined the CPI(Maoist) in 2012 and had become an armed cadre the 2013. Palo did not have any case against her in Odisha, but had several in Jharkhand, police said.

Her daughter had joined the organisation before her and had surrendered before Rourkela police in September 2015, police added.

“Her daughter’s surrender convinced Palo that there was nothing to be achieved from an armed struggle,” said Rourkela SP Anirudh Singh.
