Wife Tries Protecting Husband With Alleged Fraudulent Insurance Claim, Both End Up Arrested
24-year old Glory Ghosh of Northridge filed a claim with her car insurance reporting her car stolen. In her claim she stated she was leaving a Costa Mesa nightclub with an unidentified male.
When she got out of her 2012 Audi Q5, the male took off in her car. Afterwards, the driver of the vehicle involved CHP in a high speed chase throughout Orange County. The pursuit was ended by CHP as driving speeds were exceeding 120 mph. A short time later, CHP spotted the vehicle stopped at intersection and observed a male in the driver’s seat; a second chase began.
Eventually the driver was arrested for reckless evading and driving on a suspended license. He was identified as 27-year old Kumar Harsh of Norwalk, and Ghosh’s husband.
Being that the driver was her husband, this did not coincide with Ghosh’s insurance claim that her car was stolen by an unidentified male. Furthermore, she later changed her claim to state the car was taken from the club’s valet parking lot. It is believed Ghosh, who filed the claim a day after the vehicle was supposedly stolen, was trying to protect her husband from criminal charges by filing a fraudulent claim.
An arrest warrant was issued for Ghosh with a bail amount of $1 million. She turned herself in on November 4, 2020, and was arraigned at the Orange County Superior Court. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office will prosecute the case against Ghosh in which she is charged with multiple felonies regarding insurance fraud.
