Turns out there is a very unfortunate downside to using a biometric fingerprint scanner to lock and unlock
your car doors: when thieves want to steal your car they'll simply cut off the necessary digit and go to town. Which is
exactly what happpened to an accountant in Malaysia by the name of K Kumaran who was accosted by four men who wanted
his Mercedes S-Class, forcing him to use his finger to start the car up and then tied him up in the back seat. So far,
so good, but later, after they discovered that they couldn't restart the car, they decided to cut off his index finger
with a machete and abscond with the vehicle, leaving him naked and bleeding by the side of the road.
