Manila: An Indian man has been seriously injured after unidentified motorcycle-borne gunmen shot at him in Philippines, a media report said Saturday.

Amandeep Kour Singh, 28, was shot in the head by unknown gunmen, while he was collecting money he lent out to a store owner in Zamboanga city in southern Philippines, Mindanao Examiner reported.
A medical response team took Singh to the hospital, police said, adding a bullet casing of a .45-caliber pistol was recovered from the scene.
