Man arrested in Karachi for claiming fake insurance of vehicle  


KARACHI: Police on Sunday claimed to have apprehended a man in Karachi over claiming fake insurance of his four-wheeler vehicle, ARY NEWS reported.

According to police, the accused got a fake case registered with the police, claiming that his vehicle has been stolen and applied for its claim with the insurance company.

During a probe, it was revealed that he staged all the story to claim fake insurance of the vehicle. “He disabled the tracker from the device and sold it to another person,” they said adding that he also registered a car theft case with the police authorities in 2019 to claim the insurance.

The Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) of the Sindh police carried out a raid to recover the vehicle and arrested the person.
