    On Friday, a 26-year-old man named Midiam Jogaiah surrendered before the ASP (Operations) Ashok Kumar in Mulugu. Jogaiah, also known as Jangu or Jogalu, was an action team commander and area committee member of the banned CPI-Maoist party. He had a reward of Rs 4 lakh on his head and hailed from Venkatapur mandal.

    According to the police, Jogaiah joined the banned outfit in 2016 under the influence of Sodi Narsinga Rao, the then Militia Commander of Pujari Kanker Revolutionary People’s Committee (RPC). He worked in militia under the leadership of Narsingarao until December 2017 and was promoted as a party member and transferred to Cherla Special Guerilla Squad (SGS). He worked in the SGS until October 2020 and was promoted as Area Committee Member and transferred to senior leader Damoder’s protection team in the same year. Later, he was inducted into the ‘Action Team’ and later elevated as Action Team Commander of outlawed party’s Telangana State Committee and continued as Action Team Commander until August 2022.

    The police said that Jogaiah was involved in several killings of civilians and exchanges of fire with the police. He was also involved in various extremist offences under Venkatapuram, Wazeedu, Tadvai, Cherla, and Edula Bayaram PSs limits in the district.

    The ASP stated that Jogaiah was vexed with the CPI Maoist’s ideology, heavy workload, and discrimination against lower cadres. He wanted to leave the banned outfit and lead a normal life. The government would ensure all benefits under rehabilitation measures to Jogaiah.
