The family members of the two oil company employees, who were abducted by a group of ULFA-I and NSCN militants on December 21, have approached the relatives of ULFA-I Commander-in-Chief Paresh Baruah.
The family members of the two abducted oil company employees, as a last resort, visited the native place of ULFA-I C-in-C Paresh Baruah and met his relatives on Sunday.
The family members of the abducted oil company employees pleaded the relatives of Paresh Baruah to convince the ULFA-I Commander-in-Chief to safely release their wards.
Two employees of Quippo Oil and Gas infrastructure Pvt Ltd, – Radio operator Ram Kumar (35) from Bihar and drilling superintendent Pranab Kumar Gogoi (51) from Assam’s Sivasagar district were abducted while they were working at the Kumchaika drilling site in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh on December 21.
Earlier, the ULFA-Independent had set February 16 as the deadline for oil company – Quippo Oil and Gas Infrastructure Limited, to secure the release of its employee Ram Kumar, who hails from Bihar.
“There will be no further extension of time,” the ULFA-I said.
“If there is no response from the company by February 16, necessary action will be taken against Ram Kumar the next day. There will be no further extension of time,” the ULFA-I said.
The ULFA-I also claimed that the central intelligence agencies along with the Assam and Arunachal Pradesh Police forces are planning to kill the two abducted oil company employees.
The ULFA-Independent claimed that the Indian Armed Forces are “planning to kill the two abducted oil company employees instead of ensuring their safe release.”
“We are sure of the fact that instead of ensuring the safe release of the two oil company employees, the Indian armed forces are planning to kill the two persons and falsely blame the ULFA-Independent for their deaths,” the ULFA-Independent claimed.
