Lovelorn Japanese gangster offers severed pinkie

`An unemployed ex-gangster in Japan in love with a 15-year-old girl has chopped off his little finger and mailed it to her father twice in an unsuccessful bid to prove his commitment, police have said.

Hiroyuki Yoshikawa, 36, was arrested on Monday after the teenager’s father told police the finger had been sent to him again, after marking it return to sender the first time, a police spokesman said.’
