Auto driver Jitendra Singh and his wife Manju were held from Uttar Pradesh where they were hiding since the SOG busted the gang on Friday.
Jaipur: Rajasthan special operations group (SOG) on Wednesday arrested an auto driver, identified as Jitendra Singh and his wife for fraudulently making insurance claim by declaring himself dead in bogus accidents. The agency had busted this gang last week and arrested six of its members including a Dausa-based doctor, a lawyer and an ASI. The accused used to prepare bogus death certificates to prove the death in accidents and then make insurance claims against his or her policies.
Auto driver Jitendra Singh and his wife Manju were held from Uttar Pradesh where they were hiding since the SOG busted the gang on Friday. Jitendra is an auto driver in Delhi. The couple has been brought to Jaipur for further interrogation.
Those earlier arrested include Dr Satish Kumar Khandelwal, a senior doctor at the government hospital in Dausa and Ramesh Chandra, an ASI deputed at Kotwali polices station in Dausa. Other accused were identified as Raghuraj Singh Chouhan, Rajesh Kumar, Chaturbhuj Meena and Yash Chouhan. Chaturbhuj Meena worked as a lawyer in Dausa. Raghuram and Yash are from Delhi, while Rajesh was an employee of the Union Bank of India.
“Raghuraj Singh and Yash Chouhan asked ASI Ramesh Chand and doctor Satish Kumar Khandelwal to prove the death of Jitendra Singh in a bogus accident case. A fake entry of Jitendra’s Singh death was entered into the police station records by Ramesh Chand, while Dr Satish Kumar Khandelwal issued a fake postmortem certificate so that a bogus death certificate could be prepared,” said ADG, SO Umesh Mishra.
Using the bogus death certificate, an insurance claim of Rs 12 lakh was successful made at Bajaj Alliance. They also got Rs 2 lakh each from Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima and Prime Minister Jeevan Suraksha Yojana. They made Jitendra Singh’s wife to claim the money. They then divided the money among the gang members.
But investigators at Birla Sun Life got suspicious. When they checked the documents, they were found to be completely bogus. The company then registered an FIR with Kotwali police station in Dausa.
