Taliban released Indian cyclist after he cooked them curry!!!

A man who was captured by the Taliban spent 24 days being starved and beaten in Afghanistan persuaded his tormentors to release him by cooking them curry.

Somen Debnath was travelling through the war-torn country as part of a five-year bicycle ride through 33 countries to promote Aids awareness.

But he was taken by armed militants – who assumed he was a spy – as he travelled through the remote region of Herat.


But after realising that one of his captors had a very basic grasp of English, he convinced him to allow him to cook them all a meal.

The Taliban kidnappers were so impressed with his banquet they decided he was ''safe'' and let him go. Full story...
