3 fake insurance agents duped many to the tune of Rs 1.5 Cr
The Delhi Police has apprehended three frauds who had cheated many innocent people to the tune of Rs 1.5 crore on the pretext of investing their money in insurance policies.
The accused have been identified as Mohit Bhardwaj (27), Seepu Singh (26) and Bharat Bhusan.
On July 12, Mahender Saroj, a resident of Ashok Vihar, lodged a police complaint in which he alleged that he has been working as a labour contractor in Odisha and he has three accounts in different banks.
In March 2017, when he was at his residence in Ashok Vihar, someone called him and posed himself as an insurance consultant. During conversation, the complainant told that he was interested in insurance policies but works in Odisha and usually resides there.
On the very next day, a person named SK Madan reached his residence and met him. He told that the complainant can get Rs 1-1.5 crore as maturity pension on his two insurance policies of ICICI. After some days, he received a telephonic call from one Manoj Tiwari, who posed himself as consultant with Cigna TTK Health Insurance and persuaded him for buying some health insurance policy and also assured him of pre maturity of his ICICI policies.
On their persuasion, the complainant sent a cheque of Rs 38,399 to Cigna TTK for his health insurance. Later, he was asked to deposit more money on some pretext or another till he realised he has been cheated.
During the scrutiny of all bank accounts of the complainant as well as other beneficiaries, it has been revealed that addresses of all the beneficiaries' accounts are bogus and fake.
"No such firmsor individuals are found operating at the said addresses. As per technical surveillance on July 28, one accused Seepu Singh was apprehended from Dwarka and at his instance, other two accused persons were also apprehended," said Milind Dumbere, DCP North West.
