Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 10 : Two kernel industrialists have been booked by the crime branch of J&K police for allegedly making double insurance claim, cheating the insurance company.
A complaint was received by CB on September 1, 2016 from a private investigating agency, alleging therein that while investigating the cases entrusted by M/s HDFC ERGO General Insurance Company Limited, Delhi, regarding insurance claim No C241215013860 under policy No 2412201221091700000 of Wani Enterprises, Sallar, Anantnag, owned by one Rafi Ahmed Wani and M/s TATA AIG General Insurance Company Ltd regarding insurance claim No 895361 under policy No 0840015366 of Wani International Walnut Industry owned by Shakeel-ur-Rehman Wani with respect to the damage caused to the stocks of walnut kernels due to a road traffic accident at Chenani, Udhampur, on November 27, 2015, it was found that the insured preferred a claim of compensation of the insured amount by concealing the material facts.
It was alleged that the insured (Wani Enterprises) had got the consignment of walnut kernels insured with M/s HDFC ERGO General Insurance Company Ltd for 14,145 kgs of walnut kernels with declared value of Rs 1,81,69,745 in the name of Wani Enterprises Sallar, Srigifwara, Anantnag. The consignment was dispatched through Jehlum Roadlines Pvt Ltd to M/s S K Traders, Mumbai, whereas, a consignment of 14,145 kgs of walnut kernels was also got insured through M/s TATA AIG general Insurance Company Ltd with a declared value of 1,81,69,745 in the name of Wani International Walnut Industry, SIDCO Complex, Shalteng Industrial Estate, Srinagar. The consignment was again dispatched through Jehlum Roadlines Pvt Ltd to M/s S K Traders, Mumbai.
However, after the alleged accident of the truck (JK03B/9156) at Chenani, separate claims were made by the insured before HDFC ERGO and TATA AIG for an amount of Rs 3.62 cr on account of loss of the consignment. However, on physical verification and investigation by the company surveyors, only about 1,790 kgs of walnut kernels were found from the alleged spot without any reasonable evidence of an accident and it was found that the vehicle was deliberately pushed with a criminal intention to defraud two insurance companies and seek compensation amounting to crores of rupees.
From the above, it transpired that accused proprietors -- Rafi Ahmed Wani and Shakeel-ur-Rehman Wani -- in furtherance of a criminal conspiracy had got a fraudulent consignment of 14,145 kgs of walnut kernels insured through two different insurance companies separately under different proprietorship and thereafter, under a conspiracy, created an accident at Chenani, got a criminal case registered and filed the respective claims before both the companies by preparing and using fake and fraudulent documents, seeking compensation of the insured amount.
CB has booked Rafi and Shakeel under sections 420, 465, 466, 467, 468, 471 and 120-B of RPC. (JNF)
