In a major move in Chandigarh Stalking Case, Vikas Barala was granted bail by Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday.
Disc jockey Varnika Kundu on Monday faced 500 questions for nearly five hours during a marathon court hearing in the high-profile stalking case in which Haryana BJP president Subhash Barala’s son Vikas is the main accused.
Charges were framed against Vikas Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar, in connection with the case involving the daughter of a senior IAS officer. The incident had triggered widespread outrage and a spate of protests across the country.
The woman had accused Vikas Barala (23) and his friend Kumar (27) of stalking and attempting to abduct her.
The two men were arrested on the night of August 4-5 following the complaint but were released on bail as they were booked under bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Motor Vehicles Act.
They were arrested again on August 9 after they joined the investigation and were charged with attempted abduction under sections 365 and 511 of the IPC.
