Police officers who were on a mission to rescue an abducted Korean were surprised on Monday when they found two more victims at a supposed safehouse of a loan shark syndicate victimizing casino players.

Senior Supt. Glenn Dumlao, acting chief of the Philippine National Police Anti-Kidnapping group (PNP-AKG), said his men were only supposed to rescue Korean national Yeum Sunki, who was kidnapped from the Pan Pacific Hotel and Casino on Monday.

But when the police swooped down on the syndicate’s safehouse at Felville Subdivision in Barangay Sta. Cruz in Guiguinto, Bulacan, they found two other victims detained in separate rooms.

The lawmen identified the two others as Chinese national Liu Xia and Korean Park Panho, who were also casino players victimized by the syndicate.
