The move from the outfit came after Assam chief minister  Himanta Biswa Sarma recently appealed to ULFA(I) Chief Paresh Baruah to release Saikia at the earliest.

On April 21, three ONGC workers, including Saikia, were kidnapped from a rig site in Sivasagar.

Security forces in Nagaland rescued the other two abductees, Mohini Mohan Gogoi and Alakesh Saikia, three days later.
