A man from China’s southwestern Sichuan province was recently sentenced to a 10-day custody for kidnapping himself to ask for ransom from his wife, Chengdu Business Daily reported Tuesday.

The man named Lan Hua did this because he was troubled by rising debts.

Due to a failed investment in 2015, he owed 70,000 yuan. As China’s Spring Festival draws near, he came up with the kidnapping idea to ask for 60,000 yuan from his wife.

Lan is interrogated by a police officer.

To ensure his wife and her friend believed him, he smeared his face with chicken blood.

Worrying about Lan's safety, his wife called the police. The police soon found out that the kidnapping was planned and performed by Lan.

Lan was finally punished with a 10-day custodial sentence for public order violation.
