Sorry I forgot to update the  community on this. I tried what you suggested and 
it worked like magic. So the right way to do it is 

1. Create a user first and get his UID, do not give him a UID and give Version: 
0 (POST)
2. Get a UserGroup (json format). (GET)
3. Add the new user using UserGroup json returned from Step-2. Add UID and 
respective version, permissions to the Json. (PUT)

I hope the procedure is similar for the access policies.

Group membership is managed through the group. So you would need to update the 
group by adding the user identifier to the users list and 'PUT' that.
To see these requests in action, I would suggest opening the Developer Tools of 
your browser as the UI uses the REST API exclusively.

Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.
