The ULFA-Independent has 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.
Radio operator Ram Kumar (35), from Bihar and drilling superintendent Pranab Kumar Gogoi (51) from Assam’s Sivasagar district were abducted by a group of ULFA-I and NSCN militants on December 21, while they were working at the Kumchaika drilling site in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh.
ULFA-I has reportedly demanded a ransom of Rs 20 crore for the release of the abducted duo.
Earlier, the ULFA-I also released a video of the two kidnapped employees of the oil company where the duo can be seen pleading their respective State Governments and Chief Ministers to secure their early release.
