Bhadrachalam (Kothagudem): A Maoist has surrendered before the Bhadrachalam ASP and 39 CRPF Battalion officials here on Thursday. The surrendered Maoist was identified Savalam Yadamaiah alias Rama Rao of Mangalaguda in Kistaram taluk of Sukma district in Chhattisgarh State.
Earlier, he served as commander of 2nd Platoon-C Section and 2nd Central Regional Committee (CRC) Area Committee Member (ACM). Giving details of the Maoist surrender to the press at Bhadrachalam, ASP Rajesh Chandra said Yadamaiah joined the Maoists in 2003. He took part in as many as 12 assaults on police and CRPF personnel in Sukma and Bijapur in Chhattisgarh, Koraput in Odisha and under Cherla police station limits in Telangana State. Yadamaiah was vexed up with Maoists ideology and wanted to join mainstream life. As part of that he left Maoists, discarded arms and came to his native village, the ASP said.
