Shriram General Insurance Won Fraud Verdict in Gurugram Court

News Desk, News Nation 360 : The Gurugram Sessions Court has issued a major order to the Shriram Group company, Shriram General Insurance Company (SGIC). The historic ruling can act as a powerful disincentive for antisocial groups eager to take advantage of the insurance system for their evil purposes. Manoj Kumar had originally obtained insurance coverage for his car from Kavita Chaurasia, the co-accused's wife and an authorised SGIC insurance agent. The coverage was valid from October 18, 2016, to October 17, 2017. On October 5, 2016, the car was involved in an accident. At Manoj Kumar's request, the co-accused then attempted to manipulate the policy to retrospectively validate it from October 2, 2016, since the vehicle was not insured on the incident date. The accused Rupesh Kumar Chaurasia, a resident of Rahagod in Dhanbad, Jharkhand, and the accused Manoj Kumar, the owner of the car HR55N-0775, have both been found guilty by the court in favour of SGIC. The fraudulent forging of an insurance policy to the advantage of the car owner is at the centre of this case. SGIC was released from third-party liability after successfully contesting the case and exposing the policy's fabrication. In addition, the court ordered SGIC to report the wrongdoers in a First Information Report (FIR). Investigations proved that the co-accused and the car's owner had faked and forged the insurance policy. Held responsible for his actions is Rupesh Kumar Chaurasia, who is accused of issuing a fictitious policy on behalf of his wife, an SGIC-approved insurance agent. The honourable court ordered the arrest of Manoj Kumar and Rupesh Kumar on charges of fraud and impersonation under sections 420, 467, 468, and 471 of the Indian Penal Code after taking cognizance of the investigation reports. The Shivaji Nagar police station in the Gurugram district has taken both accused persons into judicial custody.
