Guwahati: The banned militant outfit ULFA-I released Ram Kumar, the second abducted QUIPPO employee along with Pranab Kumar Gogoi who was released in Arunachal Pradesh two days ago.
The state as well as the family were ecstatic to know any news on the whereabouts of Ram Kumar and his release as Pranab Kumar Gogoi was released in sound position.
Gogoi — a resident of Assam’s Sivasagar district was employed as drilling superintendent with Quippo — and 35-year-old Bihar native Ram Kumar — who worked as a radio operator — were kidnapped from a Quippo rig in Changlang on December 21 and taken to an undisclosed location in neighboring Myanmar.
