Varanasi: A Japanese tourist was allegedly drugged and robbed of his belongings by a man posing as a tour guide today in Shastrinagar here, police said.

Akihiro Tanaka, a resident of Tokyo, arrived in the temple city this morning by bus from Agra.

He met the impostor during a visit to a Buddhist site in Sarnath, the police said, adding that from there they went to the Varanasi ghat for sightseeing.

The accused offered him a spiked soft drink. After consuming it, Tanaka fell unconscious. He found himself in Shastrinagar when he woke up, they said.

He was robbed of his bag that contained his visa, passport, 50,000 Yen and around Rs 20,000 in cash, along with an ATM card and other items, the police said.
