GUWAHATI: At least four armed men Tuesday evening abducted a physician from his chamber in Guwahati's busy Aathgaon area, police said while ruling out the role of any militant outfit.
The incident took place around 8.30 p.m. and witnesses said that the armed men forced physician M.C. Agarwala to leave with them in his car.
They tied up Agarwala's attendants in the chamber.
Assam Police officers, including Inspector General of Police (Central Western Range) G.P. Singh, reached the spot after the incident. They said that it did not appear to be a handiwork of a militant outfit.
"We have alerted all the check posts and all the entry and exit points of the city," G.P. Singh said.
