In a shocking incident, a French woman found herself naked in bed after her drink was spiked by a man who posed as a local guide in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi.
Reports say the woman tourist from France suffered serious stomach illness after her drink was spiked by a man before she was leaving for her home on Sunday. Following the incident, the woman filed an FIR under Section 328 (causing hurt by means of poison with intent to commit an offence) of the Indian Penal Code with the Bhelupur police.
In her complaint, the victim alleged that she fell unconscious after consuming the drink and found herself naked on her bed in the guest house room when she woke up the next morning. She also suffered serious stomach problems including loose motions, vomiting, and pain, reports said.
Reports further stated that the victim met the accused person during her stay in Varanasi and he took her to multiple places in the tourist city for sightseeing. On her last day in Varanasi, the accused took her to a restaurant and offered beer after mixing it with local alcohol. The victim also informed that she fell unconscious after consuming the beer and found herself undressed the next morning.
The local police have ordered a probe and the investigation is underway. The name of the accused has not been revealed by the police yet.
A similar incident took place in August 2022 wherein a woman was raped in Delhi after her friend mixed sedatives in her cold drink and shot the video of the incident. The accused also used the video to blackmail the victim for the next few months.
Reports said the victim met the accused Sameer through Instagram in 2018. The duo became friends and they met in a flat owned by the accused. Following this, he offered her a spiked cold drink and raped her. He later shot the video of the crime and blackmailed her into having a sexual relationship with him. The incident came to light in August this year.
