Senior Maoist Leader Surrenders Before Assam Police
GUWAHATI: Senior Maoist leader Tingraj Orang surrendered before Additional Director General of Police Hiren Ch Nath (special branch) on Tuesday, September 28, police said.
Orang, age 49, is the Convener of Assam State Organising Committee (ASOC) of the Communist Party of India (CPI), formed in 2017. He was the General Secretary of Barak and Bramhaputra Valley Zonal Committees of CPI (Maoist) in Assam. He joined CPI (Maoist) in 2006.
Orang was arrested in Rourkela, Odisha, along with two Maoist cadres of Assam, Aditya Bora, and Ajoy Sabor. He hails from Samuktola village of the Dibrugarh district of Assam and was the only senior member expanding bases of CPI in Barak and Brahmaputra Valley, according to police.
"His surrender would be a huge setback for CPI (Maoist) movement in Assam, and the ASOC would be leaderless," police said in a statement.
