As soon as the police team entered the house, the duo allegedly poured kerosene and set fire to themselves.
One the brothers died on the way to hospital, while the other died during treatment.
"Though they were on fire, the policemen dragged them into the jeep without making any attempt to douse the flames. The police had come to arrest them even if they were innocent" Arzu Biwi, wife of Sabir, said.
Police however refuted the allegation.
"The policemen rushed them to hospital. The two were involved in criminal activities, and both had nearly 90 percent burns," police officer Tariq Ahemad said.
