Extremist couple surrenders

By Our Staff Reporter

WARANGAL, SEPT. 3. A divisional committee member and commander of Mahadevpur area of Janashakti, Gaddam Balraj alias Ranadev alias Vijay, and his wife, also a dalam member, Anaparthy Prameela alias Janaki, surrendered to the police in the presence of Superintendent of Police, Kothakota Srinivasa Reddy, here on Friday.

Rs. 20,000 reward

Addressing a press conference, Mr. Reddy said Balraj had earlier worked for the People's War and later joined the Janashakti when the PW objected to his marriage with Prameela. He was involved in 11 cases and carried a reward of Rs. 20,000. He is a native of Annasagar village of Hasanparthy mandal.

Prameela, a sympathiser of the PW joined the Mahamutharam LGS and went underground in 2000. She fell in love with Balraj and they got married in May 2002. Both came out of the PW and joined the Janashakti. She was involved in an exchange of fire with Maharashtra police at Sirancha forest areas during a training camp in 2003. She belongs to Sarvaipet village of Mahadevpur mandal in Karimnagar district.

The surrendered extremist couple told newsmen that due to ill health they decided to lay down arms. The SP said they would be provided rehabilitation and the reward amount would be given to them.

Woman naxal gives up

ADILABAD: Atram Renuka alias Indira alias Sandhya (20), of Luxettipet village in Utnoor mandal and a member of the People's War Indervelli dalam surrendered here on Friday. She was involved in four offences including three exchanges of fire with the police and murder of a civilian, Bheem Rao. Producing Renuka at a press conference here, the Superintendent of Police, Kripa Nanda Tripathi Ujela, and Additional SP (Operations) A. Sattar Khan, said she had decided to leave the outfit due to failing health and vexation with the ill serving party ideology.

She had joined the PW in October 2000 attracted by the revolutionary songs of naxalites. Renuka told reporters that villagers were questioning carrying of arms by naxalites in the wake of peace talks. Naxalites were prepared to walk out of the peace talks rather than go without arms, she added.
