Malkangiri: As many as 117 Maoist sympathisers, including 34 women and 14 militia members, on Monday surrendered before the police in Odisha's Malkangiri district.

The rebel supporters who surrendered belong to Barha village in Mathili police station area, Malkangiri Superintendent of Police Mitrabhanu Mohapatra said.
