At the same time, the family of the deceased is accusing the police of murder under some conspiracy. He was admitted in the ICU of Deendayal Upadhyay hospital since Tuesday. He died last night. On receipt of the information, the family members of the deceased prisoner created a ruckus in the hospital. The police had to scatter people using force in a hurry.
