The vendor took a loan of 5,600 nearly a month ago and went repay a portion of it on Monday, according top police official. He requested the lender for more time for repaying the remaining amount.

“However, the commission agent (lender) called in his accountant and two labourers to the shop. They held me inside the shop and stripped me of my clothes before assaulting me with sticks and hurling abuses at me," the vendor said in the police complaint, as reported by news agency PTI.

Additional DCP (Central Noida) Rajiv Dixit said FIR has been lodged at the local Phase 2 police station under IPC sections 323, 342, 357, 504, 506 and under Section 66E of the Information Technology Act.

"Sundar Singh, the main accused, and his aide Bhagandas Singh have been arrested. Those absconding will also be nabbed soon and the strictest action taken against them as per law," Dixit said.
