Dr Agarwal, who was abducted by miscreants from Athgaon area recently, was rescued a few days later by the police from Nalbari. The Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (Metro) while addressing the gathering said that the people must remain alert all the time and should be particularly careful in employing any person, be it in their house or in the office establishment.
