GUWAHATI, Feb 24 � Biren Hazarika, branch manager of Brink Arya Private Limited, who was reportedly abducted by miscreants on February 15, was rescued by Assam Police in the wee hours today on the Assam-Meghalaya border under mysterious condition.
According to police, the abductors were continuously on the move after police started carrying out search operation in the area.
�After sniffing the movement of the police party, the abductors became alert and managed to flee under the cover of darkness,� Senior Superintendent of Police(City)

Police have so far arrested four persons, including a woman, in this connection.
