May 20, 2021: Paresh Barua, chief of the banned militant organisation United Liberation Front of Asom - Independent (ULFA-I) on Thursday informed that the ONGC’s remaining kidnapped employee Reetul Saikia would be released within three days.



The outfit’s move came minutes after CM Himanta Biswa Sarma made an appeal at a Press conference to Paresh Baruah.



“Saikia’s parents, his wife and infant son are very distressed since his abduction. As an Assamese, it is my humble request to Paresh Baruah to release Reetul Saikia at the earliest,” Sarma said.



In April, three employees of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) were kidnapped by the ULFA-I from Assam’s Sivasagar district.



Earlier, two of the three men have been rescued by security forces.
