A CCTV footage has lent credence to claims that Amir Masih was subjected to torture by police officials.
According to the family of the deceased, Masih, a gardener by profession, had appeared before North Cantt police last week to prove his innocence against charges of theft levelled against him by his employer, but the police detained him and subjected him to severe torture which claimed his life.
