By Santosh Kumar Sharma: The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) arrested a man accused of impersonating officers of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), and Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) and defrauding people of crores of rupees. The accused, identified as Vimal Kumar, was arrested from Delhi.

Vimal Kumar, a resident of Ghaziabad, was sent to jail in a case registered in Krishna Nagar, Lucknow.

In April, UPSTF had arrested nine people, including gangster Dhirendra, in a fraud case. Vimal Kumar used to provide customers’ data to the gang who cheated them in the name of getting insurance claims.

After the raid in April, Vimal Kumar had absconded and had started working at another company. He was arrested on Saturday.
