Goa Police on Monday said that the 24-year-old Dutch national was only drugged and robbed by a group of Nigerians on a beach near Anjuna village and no rape case has been registered.
"We have received the complaint of drugging and robbing. The girl did not say anything about sexual abuse and hence rape case was not registered," SP (North) Bosco George told PTI.
It is a case of robbery and police are on a look out for the group of Nigerians who allegedly committed the crime, he said.
A group of six Nigerians allegedly spiked the girl's drink before robbing her on December 31 midnight.
Police sources had yesterday said that the Dutch girl had complained of rape and hence medical examination was being conducted on her.
"The medical examination was conducted as she was drugged," George said.
However, the sources said that the tests were done to ascertain rape.
The Dutch girl, who is holidaying with her mother in the coastal state has also failed to recognise the spot where the incident occurred.
"She was drugged and hence was not in a position to know the exact place," a police official said
Incidentally, the Dutch national was drugged and robbed on December 31 midnight when the entire coastal state was on alert with a ban on beach parties and strong posse of policemen manning the beaches, especially isolated spots.
