Police refuted the allegation, saying that the suspect was a drug-dealer. When a police team raided his hideout, the man jumped from the building in a bid to escape.
He was rushed to hospital in a critical condition, but survived.
The man said he had a monetary dispute with a man named Mushtaq, who asked him to come to his house to settle the issue. When he reached there, two police officials took him to their "private cell" in the building and tortured him.
