Surrendered Maoists Tie Knot In Odisha’s Angul
Angul: Two Maoists Commanders, who once killed innocents, today tied the nuptial knot in Odisha’s Angul district and began a new life in the mainstream.
The surrendered Maoists, identified as Jolly Dehuri (19) and Chotu Gonju (26) got married at Chandaneswar Shiva temple in Majhipada in the district. The marriage was held as per Hindu rituals.
According to sources, Joly is a resident of Majhipada in Angul while Chotu hails from Jharkhand. Choyu joined the CPI (Maoist) at a very young age and led the rebel outfit in Sundergarh, Deogarh and Sambalpur Division in Odisha.
Both the couple met for the first time in January 2018 when Chotu was leading a Maoist camp in Tikarpara area in Angul. Joly also joined the Maoist organisation following Chotu’s path, sources said.
However, the Maoists organisation did not approve their relationship. Hence, the duo left the Maoist organisation and surrendered before the police in 2018.
Later, the rehabilitation programme of the State government helped them to gradually return to the mainstream of society.
Importantly, the locals and family members extended their support to the couple and attended the marriage ceremony in large number.
