Pune: A 28-year-old Ravet resident was drugged and robbed by a woman whom he invited to his house for dinner, after meeting her through an online dating platform.
The incident occurred on Thursday evening. The man approached the Dehu Road police and, as per his complaint, the suspect fled with two gold rings, a gold chain and a high-end smartphone, together worth Rs1.5 lakh.
The police have registered a case under IPC sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison, etc) and 380 (theft).
Police said the complainant, who works for a private company, downloaded a dating application on his cellphone a few months ago. His profile matched with the suspect’s a few days ago and the two of them started chatting. They decided to have a date at his house on Thursday, police said.
“The woman arrived at his home around 5.30pm. Both of them sat down and chatted for a while. Sometime later, the man fetched water for both of them,” police said.
When the man went to the washroom, the woman mixed a sedative in his glass of water. The man drank the water and lost consciousness, police said.
The woman walked out of the flat with the valuables. “Samples of the water from the glass have sent for chemical analysis,” police said.
