Stalking case

Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala's son Vikas and his friend Ashish Kumar, who are accused of chasing and stalking Varnika Kundu, the daughter of a senior IAS officer in a bid to kidnap her, were sent to judicial custody till August 25 on Saturday.

The counsel for both the accused, Surya Prakash told The Statesman that so far Barala and Kumar's families have instructed him to not to apply for the bail as the family members are fully confident that they were wrongly implicated in the case. Vikas and Ashish were presented in the court today following 2-day custody that expired on August 11.

After massive outrage on streets and in the Parliament, the accused appeared before a Chandigarh court on Thursday.

However, Subhash Barala has said that there is no political interference in the case and the police will take action as per the law.

The defence lawyer had earlier claimed that Vikas and Ashish had not committed any offence and said a "media trial" was going on in the case. The duo were arrested on August 9 in connection with stalking of bureaucrat's daughter Varnika Kundu.

Meanwhile, investigators are still clueless about the whereabouts of the vehicle and the persons accused, police said on Friday.

The notice was issued to both the accused, under 160 Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) and the case was filed against Barala under Section 354D (stalking), 341 (wrongful restraint), 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 185 MV Act (rash driving). On a complaint by Varnika, the duo was arrested on August 5 by the Chandigarh police.
