Agarwal is survived by his wife, son and daughter. Like he did every day, Agarwal came to his fourth floor office in Sanjona Complex, Chembur, with his son and brother in law. "He came to office around 10.45 am and after checking some files in his cabin for around 30 minutes, his staff heard the loud sound of a gun going off. They all ran towards his cabin, but found him dead inside. He had fired from his licensed revolver on this right side of his head," a cop from Chembur police station said.
