New Delhi: The Maoists in Odisha have released an audio tape related to the abduction of BJD MLA Jhina Hikaka, setting April 5 as the deadline for the state government to accept their demands and release arrested comrades. The Left-wing ultras have also promised that they would release the BJD MLA after the demands have been met.

The audio tape was released to media reportedly by the Andhra-Odisha Border Special Zonal Comittee secretary, Chandramouli.

Days after the Odisha government invited it for talks for release of Jhina Hikaka, Maoist-backed Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangh on Monday said it was willing to do so if certain conditions were fulfilled.

Listing the conditions for participating in the talks for Hikaka's release, outfit President Nachika Linga Linga, on the run since 2009, said in a statement to the media that all cases against him would have to be withdrawn, all jailed CMAS members released and anti-Maoist operations halted.

Alleging that many CMAS members were in Koraput jail on 'false charges' for a very long time, Linga, said if the conditions were fulfilled the Sangh would mediate for the release of 37-year-old Laxmipur MLA Hikaka, who was abducted on March 24.
