Vinayak Vedpathak, hailing from Osamanabad district, was upset as his complaint in a loan-related matter was not registered by the local police, he said.
He was detained and later taken to the office of the Home department's additional chief secretary for redressal of his complaint, he said.
Vedpathak borrowed a sum from a private money lender, who was now demanding repayment and was allegedly harassing him over it, the official said.
He alleged that he approached a police station in Osmanabad, but his complaint was not registered, he said.
As he was upset over it, he came to the secretariat to put forth his grievance, he added.
The registrar would then submit a report to the local police, based on which the police could decide whether an offence was required to be registered against the money lender, he added.
