According to sources, Jolly Dehury had joined the Maoist camp after coming in contact with a red rebel group in Tikarpada in the year 2018. During training, she fell in love with another cadre Maoist Chhotu Ganju, a resident of Jharkhand. However, the Maoists organisation did not approve their relationship.
Later, both of them decided to quit the path of extremism. Finally, in 2018, the duo left the Maoist organisation and surrendered before the police.
The rehabilitation programme helped them to gradually return to the mainstream of society.
Later, the duo tied the knot at Chandaneswar Shiva temple at Majhipada in Angul district with the consent of both the families as per the Vedic rituals.
