Pregnant Woman Thrown from Van with Hands Amputated

TWO men and a pregnant woman were thrown from a van with their hands amputated, by a drugs cartel.

The pregnant woman, thought to be in her twenties, lay on the floor with her hands amputated begging for help from onlookers. The two men in their early twenties were dumped beside her from the van, and a plastic bag that contained all the severed hands was thrown from the still moving vehicle too.

The horrific warnings occurred in the state of Guanajuato in Central Mexico. The Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNJ) has taken responsibility for the attacks and left a message in the bloody bag that said, “This happened to me for being a rat (thief) and not respecting good, hard-working people.

“Anybody that does the same thing and continues to steal will suffer the same fate.”

The area has experienced an increasing level of violence since 2018 and there is said to be an ongoing war between the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel and the CJNG in the area.
