Muzaffargarh: A man, who was allegedly in the illegal custody of the Jatoi Police Station in Pakistan, has died due to alleged police torture, media reports said.

After the custodial death, six police officials, including a sub-inspector, were booked in a murder case and they were suspended from service, Dawn News reported.

Muhammad Safdar, a resident of Rampur, was taken into custody by the Jatoi police five days back; however, his arrest was not registered.

The body of the person was allegedly found hanging in the lockup of the check-post.

Safdar’s family alleged that police subjected him to severe torture during interrogation and killed him, the newspaper reported.

The body of the person was shifted to hospital for a post-mortem.

The police claimed that Safdar committed suicide by hanging himself and that he was on remand in a robbery case.
