Indian doctor scammed over $40,000 for 'Aladdin's lamp' after genie show

 Police has arrested two men who allegedly tricked a doctor into buying an "Aladdin's lamp" for 7 million rupees (93,962.82 USD). later found out that it was a fake magic ritual showing a genie.



Laeek Khan filed a formal complaint after he realized the lamp he bought doesn't contain a genie, Straits Times reported.





"The cheats had struck a deal for much more, but the doctor had paid about seven million rupees," Amit Rai, a senior officer told AFP.





The fraud was believed to have started when Khan was treating a woman which appeared to be the men's sick mom, NDTV reported.



"I started visiting their home to treat the supposed mother. The visits continued for over a month. Gradually they started telling me about a baba (godman) whom they claimed also visited their home. They started brainwashing me and asked me to meet this baba," Dr Khan said in his complaint.





Eventually, after they captured his weaknesses the group offered him an "Aladdin lamp" that would grant him all his wish.



"During one visit "Aladdin" actually made an appearance in front of me. I did not know who this person was at that time. I later realised (one of) the accused was dressing up as 'Aladdin'," the doctor said.



“The cheats had struck a deal for much more, but the doctor had paid about seven million rupees ($93,976),” senior officer Amit Rai said.
