A female tourist from U.K has lodged a complaint through the British Embassy in India that she was allegedly robbed in Udaipur during her visit to the city to attend Gangaur Festival.

Ghanta Ghar Police has started investigation as per the complaint registered by the victim.

Tourist Liz Hagen in her complaint mentioned that she had come to Udaipur on April 1 and stayed at a hotel in the old city area. She was moving around in the market and was approached by a man named Shahid.

Shahid told Hagen that he was into export business and owned a handicraft showroom in England and in Udaipur he had a shop having a good stock of Pashmina Shawls and related items. Hagen agreed to visit his shop at Lalghat area where Shahid along with his two brothers displayed variety of shawls to her, said Police.

The duo offered Hagen a cold drink after drinking when she started feeling drowsy. When she regained her consciousness, she found herself in her hotel room. On checking her wallet found, she 1100 Pound Sterlings missing (Almost INR 1,12,000).

Hagen held in her complaint that she shared her misery with her Indian friend in New Delhi who suggested that she register a case through the Embassy for stern action against the culprits.
