```Newbie answer:

In[47]:=
data = {a, b, c, d, e, f, g,
h, i, j, k, l}
ind = {2, 3, 4}
Out[47]=
{a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i,
j, k, l}
Out[48]=
{2, 3, 4}

In[85]:=
Table[{Take[data,
{Sum[ind[[x]], {x, 1,
y}] - ind[[y]] + 1,
Sum[ind[[x]], {x, 1,
y}]}], Complement[
Take[data,
{Sum[ind[[x]], {x, 1,
y}] - ind[[y]] + 1,
Length[data]}],
Take[data,
{Sum[ind[[x]], {x, 1,
y}] - ind[[y]] + 1,
Sum[ind[[x]], {x, 1,
y}]}]]}, {y, 1, 3}][[
All,1]]
Out[85]=
{{a, b}, {c, d, e},
{f, g, h, i}}

P.S. I am sure there is a better way with Fold, I just do not feel Fold
enough.
