Philippine police has reportedly rescued a kidnapped Indian businessman whose severed finger was delivered to his family.
Senior Superintendent Renato Gumban said Gurtej Singh was rescued Friday during a raid of the kidnappers' hideout in northern Bulacan province.
Four abductors were killed in a shootout and another was arrested, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Gumban said that Singh and his wife Kulwinder Kaur were talking to clients of their money-lending business along a road in Pulilan township when the kidnappers struck on December 22.
They demanded 20 million pesos in ransom, which was later reduced to 1 million pesos, the paper said.
Gumban said that his wife was freed Saturday after her family paid 277,000 pesos
When Singh's ransom did not arrive Sunday, the kidnappers left his severed finger near his home, the report said. (ANI)
