Employer must pay for the work you have done. He can not deny to pay, unless the contract of employment otherwise provides. But the remedy is not with the police but with the machinery established under the Labour Laws. You can also file civil suit for recovery.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

You can do the following:

1. You can file a complaint against your employer to the company;
2. You can file a criminal case against the company under Indian Penal Code;
3. You can send him a legal notice drafted by a lawyer;
4. After all this still yields no result, you approach the court.
