For most of us, foodies' paradise has multiple names Golgappa, Puchka, Pani ke batashe and of course, Paani Puri.
This Indian street food is drooled over by so many that they even forget the hygiene factor before consuming it.
Recently, a disgusting video of a panipuri vendor mixing urine in the jaljeera water went viral, grossing everyone out on the Internet.
The panipuri vendor can be seen peeing in a mug behind his booth and adding it to the panipuri water in a 20-second video posted on Twitter. The incident was reportedly captured in Assam's Guwahati's Athgaon area.

Similar incident was reported in Thane near Mumbai sometimes ago. This is most heinous crime. But shockingly people still crazy for street food. Shame on them.— Sunil Chaurasia (@sunilree) August 23, 2021

What sort of people make this planet? Apart from being arrested, he should be severely punished and never allowed to conduct business. Disgusting.— Deepak Jagtiani (@DeepakJagtiani6) August 22, 2021
