In the second such case this year, a man has been charged with cheating an insurance company by staging a road accident.

Mohamad Eznillah Mohamed Razali, who was charged last Friday, is accused of conspiring with Mohammad Shahel Mod Talib to cheat NTUC Income Insurance Co-operative by making fraudulent claims amounting to $31,490.

Just last month, four other men were jailed between six weeks and four months for providing their vehicles and posing as injured passengers in another fake road accident in Sembawang Drive.

In the latest case, Mohamad Eznillah, who works in a mosque, told police that at 4.15pm on Oct 9 last year, he and his wife were involved in a three-vehicle collision in Sungei Kadut Drive.
