Two Omani citizens have been arrested for attempting to defraud an insurance company by setting their car on fire.
According a Royal Oman Police statement, the Criminal Investigation and Investigation Department at the police station arrested two citizens for causing a traffic accident and setting fire to a vehicle in order to obtain indemnity from the insurance company.
An official source at North Batinah police said, "The accused informed the police station about an accident between their vehicles on one of the internal streets in the state." A police investigation found evidence that the accident was fabricated.
A case has been filed against the accused, who have been referred to judicial authorities to take legal action against them.
