We’ve all heard of folks who pretend to die for a variety of absurd and entertaining reasons. Some people do it to relieve stress in their workplace, while others commit various types of fraud, such as insurance fraud, to get money. Sukumara Kurup, an identical fugitive in Kerala, staged his death by killing a man named Chacko who had similar physical attributes to him. Kurup and his companions poisoned, choked, and eventually murdered Ambassador Chacko, then burned the body in the evening. He allegedly committed this horrible murder in order to defraud an insurance company of Rs. 8,00,000. He escaped the nation and has been missing for nearly three decades. For a long time, there has been a comparable situation in other countries.
