Dutch Tourists and "Aphrodisiac" samosas in India

A Dutch couple on a visit to India were charged 10,000 rupees ($365) for four "aphrodisiac" samosas. When challenged over the bill, the stall holder told them his "special" samosas cost more because they were made of herbs and had aphrodisiac qualities, the Hindustan Times reported. The couple were roaming around a cattle fair in Bihar when they got hungry and ordered the four snacks from the hawker. After an argument, the couple paid the shopkeeper. However, not convinced that the high price of the snack was justified, the couple approached the police. Officers forced the shopkeeper to return the change - 9990 rupees.
