    Lucknow: The Lucknow cyber police unit has arrested two men for their involvement in a scheme to unlawfully claim benefits under the Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima yojana.

    The accused have been identified as -- Sooraj Mani from Ghazipur and Nagendra Pal from Kakori.

    The two men were in possession of incriminating evidence -- including two mobile phones, a laptop, and a CPU.

    During interrogation, they confessed to their involvement in similar criminal activities over the past several years.

    The case came to light when V.M. Joshi from Maharashtra filed a complaint with the cyber police, alleging that the perpetrators had fabricated a counterfeit death certificate and submitted it to India First Life Insurance Company in pursuit of a death claim for a policy.

    The cyber police diligently investigated the matter, leading them to a website where the culprits had submitted numerous fraudulent claims.

    Employing advanced cyber techniques and digital tracking, the police successfully traced the suspects and subsequently apprehended them.
