A 55-year-old man suffered a cardiac arrest after coming to know that the police arrested his son.
Ashu, daughter of the deceased, Narayan, claimed that her brother, Atul, 18, was nabbed by the Sherpur police, following which her father went to the police post, and suffered a heart attack there.
She alleged that the police arrested her brother without any offence and even demanded hefty amount from her father for releasing him.
