Husband-wife duo, both LIC agents, dupe many policy holders

A husband-wife duo, both LIC agents, duped a middle-aged woman and others by pocketing their policy premium amounts to the tune of Rs 72,000.

The accused couple, Varsha Virendra Ban and Virendra Ban, both residents of Bhagwati Nagar, Hudkeshwar, acting as LIC agents, collected policy premiums from Gita Madhukar Godbole (45) and other policy holders to the tune of Rs 72,000. However, instead of depositing the policy premiums, the accused husband-wife duo used the money for their own gain. Thus the couple cheated Gita and others.

Shantinagar Assistant PSI Tiwari, based on Gita’s complaint, has booked the con couple under Sections 420, 34 of the IPC and probing the matter further.
