Delhi insurance agent fools Barodian of Rs 12 lakh | Vadodara news
Vadodara: Cybercrime detectives arrested a man for having duped a barodian of Rs 12 lakh by posing as an executive of an insurance company. Dinesh Lohera was arrested at his residence in Delhi after cops tracked him down using his phone number and bank accounts.
Police said Lohera used to call Praveen Parmar, a resident of Karelibaug, and offer him loans on different insurance policies. The cops are now checking to see if anyone else was involved with Lohera in the fraud. Parmar had filed a cheating complaint worth around Rs 12 lakh to the cybercrime police on December 30, 2021.
Parmar had told police that in 2019 he received several calls from a woman offering insurance policies. He refused to take out the policy, but soon received a call from a man who identified himself as Rahul Sharma and offered him a loan on an insurance policy. The accused asked Parmar to take out a policy of Rs 39,000 for a loan of Rs 12 lakh.
Parmar took out the policy but did not get any loans, after which Sharma told him the amount was repayable. The accused then again asked Parmar to take out another policy worth Rs 64,000 for which the latter paid in June 2020. After a few days, Sharma asked Parmar to take out another policy with a company to have his loan processed.
Between March 2021 and November 2021, Parmar paid another Rs 10.20 lakh in 24 different installments. But he never got the loan amount or any policy as a result of which he contacted the police.
