Nuapada: A wanted woman cadre Maoist, carrying Rs 1 lakh on her head, surrendered before the Nuapada Superintendent of Police (SP) on Tuesday.

Dalmati Paharia was carrying a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh on her head surrendered before Nuapada SP. Paharia was working for the outlawed CPI (Maoist) under Mainpur-Nuapada division.

The SP welcomed her to the mainstream of the society and assured all possible helps from the Government side for her proper rehabilitation.
