"Good! Such persons need to face the law! And citizens need to start complaining instead of showing sympathy towards their state! They may have difficulties, but the law doesn't allow them to charge above the prices set forth!" posted a third.

A fourth commented, Same thing happened to me yesterday. But I refused to pay extra."

"It should be the same as their original price, but there are some factors which control the price in the places like railway stations and airports, such as the rent of the shop, lack of time for customers, availability of goods etc. But the shopkeeper's behaviour was not good," added a fifth.
