A MYANMAR national had his left hand severed after he failed to settle a loan which he took from his fellow countrymen, Metro Ahad reported.
The man, known only as Alias, was at home in Kuala Pilah, Seremban, on Friday night when four people, aged between 13 and 45, forced their way into the house.
Kuala Pilah district police chief Supt Azmi Abdul Rahim said the Myanmar nationals, who all worked in the same vegetable farm, had come into the house and demanded Alias, who is in his 20s, to settle the loan.
"A scuffle broke out when he gave excuses over the loan," he said.
"One of them pulled out a parang and cut off the victim's left hand."
He said the four suspects tried to flee when they noticed policemen arriving at the house.
The cops managed to nab them.
