Hansi: A businessman was arrested for allegedly faking his death to get an insurance amount of Rs 1.6 crores, according to Hansi Police on Saturday.

The main accused Rammehar, hailing from Datta village in Hissar, had allegedly fabricated a story of his own death to receive the insurance money, informed Hansi police.

“On October 6, past midnight at 12.05 am, the station manager in Hansi was informed that two motorcycles and a car were chasing Rammehar on Mahajat road. Going from Bhatla to Mahajat Road, we saw a car and a charred body inside it, and at the same time, Rammehar’s family members also reached the spot,” said Lockender Singh, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP).

He further said, “The police recovered the vehicle and transported the body to the hospital for postmortem. The investigation revealed a clear fabrication of the incident which Rammehar conspired on his own.”

The Hansi police have found two insurance policies – Rs 1,10,00,000 from State Bank of India and Rs 50,00,000 from Life Insurance Corporation, under his name. The investigation in this regard is underway, police said.

Singh said Ramemehar was not dead and after further investigation, the police arrested him from Bilaspur. Based on the details, it was revealed that Rammehar himself had executed the incident. Police are finding out whether somebody else was part of the conspiracy.

Rammehar has passed highschool and owns about 15 acres of land.

Hansi police are further investigating the matter.

Federal investigators say a Coppell man fraudulently applied for dozens of federal stimulus PPP grants and received more than $17 million that he spent buying real estate and luxury cars such as a Bentley and a Corvette.

A coalition of federal agencies charged Dinesh Sah, 55, of Coppell, with applying for $24.8 million in PPP loans for 15 businesses that claimed to have more than 500 employees, but in fact, many of the businesses were registered after the CARES Act was passed and did not have any employees, according to court documents detailing the indictment.

“Mr. Sah exploited this terrible pandemic for personal gain – and he should be held accountable to the American people for that behavior,” said U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox in a statement. “COVID-19 has devastated the finances of hardworking business owners across the nation. PPP funds should be reserved for those who really need them to keep their companies afloat.”

Sah was arrested Sept. 16 and remains in custody, said a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office for the Northern District of Texas.

Sah is one of dozens indicted by government prosecutors for fraudulently applying for forgivable loans through the Payroll Protection Program, the $650 billion slice of the CARES Act designed to help small businesses cover costs for wages, rent and utilities. Among those charged with fraud were a former NFL football player and a former reality television star.

The Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program provided forgivable loans to North Texas restaurants, churches, hotels, nonprofits and many other groups to help them weather the economic fallout of COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 5.2 million loans were approved nationwide. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, Texas businesses were approved for more than $41 billion in grants that were intended to go to businesses with 500 employees or fewer.

The indictment said Sah actually received $17.3 million and used the money on multiple homes, international transfers and a 2020 Bentley convertible, a luxury car that typically sells

Two drug addicts have been jailed for fatally attacking a “very lonely” pensioner as they tried to get money from him.

Class A user Hannah Day, 29, of Ashford, Surrey, had befriended 75-year-old Weymouth resident John Cornish and managed to manipulate £30,000 from him over several years, Dorset Police said.

She visited his home with Aaron Brown, 39, another drug user, on 6 September 2019 and, seeking money for their habit, attacked Cornish, leaving him with 42 injuries.

A court heard Day and Brown had sex in his house while the pensioner lay dead.

The pair was found guilty of manslaughter and attempted robbery following a trial at Winchester Crown Court. Day was given 14 years in prison while Brown was sentenced to 13 years and six months.

Justice Garnham told Day: “You became a cuckoo in his nest, you were not content with his generosity, you wanted more, so you took it.”

Dorset Police said Day met Brown – thought to be the first time the two had contact – earlier on the day Cornish died.

CCTV shows the pensioner arriving home at about 3pm, with Day and Brown arriving just before 5pm.

Police said the two wanted drug money from Cornish and an “altercation took place”, in which the elderly man suffered a fracture to a neck bone, a bump to the head, bruising on his back and small puncture marks, possibly caused by a knife or sharp instrument.

In total, Winchester Crown Court heard he suffered 42 injuries.

A post-mortem examination found that while neck compression injuries could have caused his death, it was possible he suffered a cardiac episode brought about

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man will likely spend the rest of his life in prison after being convicted of killing his parents over Thanksgiving weekend in 2016 and disposing of their bodies.

Joel Guy Jr., 32, was found guilty Friday in Knox County of two counts of premeditated first-degree murder, three counts of felony murder and two counts of abuse of a corpse, news outlets reported.

Prosecutors alleged he fatally stabbed his parents, Joel Guy Sr., 61, and Lisa Guy, 55, and dismembered their bodies in a plot to cash in on $500,000 in life insurance benefits after learning they were planning to retire and no longer pay his bills.

Joel Guy Jr. had never held a job and had been taking college courses for a decade at Louisiana State University, The Knoxville News Sentinel said.

He was found to have taken money from his parents’ bank accounts for his rent and tuition after stabbing them dozens of times in their Hardin Valley home, according to authorities. He then attempted to dissolve their remains in chemicals.

A judge was set to decide next month whether Joel Guy Jr. would serve two life terms consecutively.
