Two men have been arrested in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh for allegedly duping a doctor into buying an "Aladdin's lamp" that they promised would bring him wealth and health.


Laeek Khan approached police in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh after he realised the lamp did not have any magical powers, as described in the popular folk tale about Aladdin and his wish-granting genie that appears when it is rubbed.

“The cheats had struck a deal for much more but the doctor had paid about 7m rupees (£72,000),”

In his complaint, filed last Sunday, Khan said one of the men pretended to be an occultist and made a “jinn”, or supernatural figure, appear from the lamp, local media reported. But when Khan asked if he could touch the genie or take the lamp home, they refused, saying it might cause him harm, the complaint stated.

The men eventually offered him the lamp, promising it "would bring wealth, health and good fortune"

Possibly stuff he had prescribed for himself.

I brought a brass Aladdin’s lamp home from the bizarre in Muscat, Oman circa 1983, but it was not this fancy. Rubbed on it for several weeks and nothing! It was still a bargain for $10 or was it $20? My wife swears it’s still around. If located a picture will be posted. :)
