Mysore/Mysuru: Miscreants, who collected documents from private firm employees, who were admitted at a private hospital, to claim medical insurance, have obtained loans from a private finance firm, thus cheating the employees.

Details: Kantha, Santosh and Shivanna, employees of a private firm were given Health Insurance Cards from the company. In 2022, the three were admitted to Ramakrishna Hospital in Chamundipuram.

To claim the insurance amount for payment of bill, one Syed Asad Ahmed and a staff of the hospital collected documents such as a copy of Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, Health card, ID Card given to them from the company and photos of the trio and also obtained the One Time Password (OTP) numbers sent to their mobile phones. Though the hospital bills were paid by the insurance company, loans of Rs. 1,17,730 in the name of M.C. Kantha, Rs. 1,24,566 in the name of C. Santosh and Rs. 1,17,446 in the name of H. Shivanna were taken from Mumbai-based Liquiloans Company and the loan amount were deposited to the Bank account of AVIS Hospital in Hyderabad.

They also found that loans were taken in their names and as they had overdue, they were not being employed elsewhere nor were they getting loans from Banks.

Kantha has also stated that there was a delay in filing the complaint as the staff of the private hospital in city assured them of solving the problem but  wasted the time.

Based on the complaint, Vidyaranyapuram Police, who have registered a case under IPC Sections 406, 420 and 34, are investigating.
