A 30-year-old man, who was arrested for allegedly harassing his wife, died under mysterious circumstances in police custody here on the intervening night of Sunday and Monday.

The deceased has been identified as Vikas, a resident of Karan Vihar in the city. The kin of the deceased alleged that the family of the girl had thrashed the victim to death.

On the complaint of the kin of the deceased, a case under Section 302, 34 of the IPC has been registered against the four family members of the victim’s wife, Ganga Ram Punia, Superintendent of Police (SP), said.

As per Section 176 of the CrPC, inquiry by judicial magistrate was being conducted, he said, adding that on the request of the police, a judicial magistrate had been appointed.
