A 72-year-old retired MCD employee suffered a cardiac attack at the Sarojini Nagar police station. He and his two sons had been called there for questioning into a harassment complaint filed by the mother of his two daughters-in-law.

The incident took place on Saturday evening. The victim, identified as Dharam Chand, died at Sardarjung hospital hours after he was admitted there by the police. Chand was a resident of Sultanpuri in outer Delhi.

"We had called both the families for a compromise. Chand and his sons reached the police station around 6pm. At 7pm, he complained about chest pain. We rushed him to the Safdarjung Hospital where he succumbed to the heart attack," said a police officer.

An enquiry had been ordered to ascertain the exact sequence of events. "When Chand complained of chest pain, all his family members were present on the spot. Chand was not even an accused. He had just been called to reach a settlement with his daughters-in-law," said the officer, adding that Chand had been a heart patient.
