Doctor swindled into buying ‘Aladdin’s lamp’ for eye-watering price

Two men have been arrested after an Indian doctor was tricked into buying ‘Aladdin’s lamp’ for the eye-watering price of $135,000.

He was promised the big-ticket purchase would bring him both wealth and good fortune, according to Al Jazeera.

Dr Laeek Khan then went to police in Uttar Pradesh after realising his new purchase did not have any magical powers.

It also did not, in fact, have a genie living inside of it ready to grant his every wish.

The doctor is said to have paid around seven million rupees for it – which equates to around AUD$135,000.

Two men have since been arrested and are in custody ahead of being charged.
