The spe­cial op­er­a­tions group (SOG) of Ra­jasthan po­lice on Wed­nes­day ar­rested a cou­ple for their in­volve­ment in a fake in­surance claim racket, which was be­ing run from their vil­lage in Ut­tar Pradesh’s Main­puri dis­trict.

Ji­ten­dra Singh (37) and his wife Sudha (36) were part of the racket that fraud­u­lently claimed in­surance money on the ba­sis of fake doc­u­ments of a liv­ing man, an SOG of­fi­cial said.

Singh was shown to be dead and the in­surance money was claimed with the help of his wife, who was the nom­i­nee in the in­surance poli­cies, he added. They were ar­rested from their vil­lage Uja­garpura.

The SOG last week had ar­rested six peo­ple, in­clud­ing a govern­ment doc­tor and an as­sis­tant sub-in­spec­tor, in the racket.

Some more cases of in­surance money be­ing taken by fake claims have also emerged, said Karan Sharma, the ad­di­tional su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice of SOG. More de­tails about the cases have been sought from the re­spec­tive po­lice sta­tions. All the eight ar­rested peo­ple will be in the po­lice cus­tody till Satur­day.

Umesh Mishra, ad­di­tional di­rec­tor gen­eral of SOG, said a case of fake in­surance claim was reg­is­tered at Kot­wali po­lice sta­tion in Dausa dis­trict on Oc­to­ber 10 last year. A sim­i­lar case was reg­is­tered at Ram­garh Pach­wara po­lice sta­tion. Ra­jasthan po­lice chief trans­ferred the two cases to the SOG for in­ter­ro­ga­tion be­cause it seemed like the hand­i­work of an or­gan­ised gang.
