Chandigarh Stalking Case: Vikas Barala Gets Bail

Chandigarh Stalking Case: Vikas Barala Gets Bail

Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala's son Vikas Barala, who had been booked for stalking and attempting to abduct a woman, has been granted bail by Punjab and Haryana High Court.

On 4 August 2017, when Kundu was returning home from work and at around 11.15 pm in Chandigarh, Barala, along with a friend, allegedly stalked her by chasing her auto. "The bail of Vikas Barala has been approved by Justice Lisa Gill", Barala's counsel Vinod Ghai said. Her cross-examination concluded in the district courts in Chandigarh.

Vikas, the son of BJP's Haryana unit president, and his friend Ashish were arrested for allegedly stalking and attempting to abduct Kundu, the daughter of a senior Haryana bureaucrat, in early August a year ago.

The court had deferred its bail plea hearing to January 11 in December.

The woman had accused Barala and Kumar of stalking and attempting to abduct her.

They had chased Varnika, who was in her vehicle and driving back from Chandigarh to adjoining town of Panchkula around midnight, in their SUV.

In December, Barala's counsel, seeking regular bail from the court, submitted his client had been behind bars for almost four months.

His petition for bail was dismissed four times by the trial court.

Charges were framed against Vikas Barala and his 27- year-old friend, Ashish Kumar, in connection with the case, which had triggered widespread outrage and a spate of protests across the country.

Based on Varnika's complaint the Chandigarh Police arrested Vikas and Ashish and charged them under five different sections of the Indian Penal Code.
