Insurance firms can't be liable to pay compensation to those who travel in goods carriers: Madras HC
The 21-year-old and her relative, 29, face up to eight years in prison on charges of attempted fraud.
The woman is thought to have staged the incident, together with three relatives, earlier this year shortly after the group signed life and injury insurance contracts with five different insurance companies.
All four were arrested initially, but two were released.
The woman was hoping to get around 380,000 euros of compensation and a life-long monthly payout of some 3,000 euros, police said.
The group intentionally left the hand behind rather than bringing it with them to the hospital, hoping to receive three times higher compensation for permanent disability, police said.
But authorities managed to pick up the hand in time, and doctors in a hospital in the capital Ljubljana managed to sew it back on, Zrinski said. The average monthly net income is around 1,000 euros in Slovenia.
