Chandigarh stalking case: Police say not under pressure, investigating with open mind

Ms. Kumaramangalam also described as "regrettable and unfortunate" the reported remarks by Chandigarh BJP vice-president Ramveer Bhatti that girls and women should not be going out alone during midnight.

Varnika on Friday had posted details of a awful chase on Facebook involving Vikas Barala, who was allegedly stalking her on the streets of Chandigarh in his SUV.

The Chandigarh Police on Monday said they are doing everything to help the victim who was stalked by the son of Haryana Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief few days ago. "It is a general statement and not one directed at the victim".

He also accused Chandigarh Police DSP Satish Kumar, probing the case, of changing his statement within hours, allegedly at the behest of the Central government. Haryana BJP Chief's son and his friend were booked under section 354 D (stalking) of IPC and 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs). "Absolutely shocking. Time we made our nation a safe place for all women. I have full faith in the law", said Barala.

Vikas was on Saturday arrested for stalking and harassing a woman in Chandigarh.

"If I had been a village girl, probably I would not have the resources to fight these guys", said the complainant who appeared on television with her father by her side to present her viewpoint. After facing backlash for their U-turn, the police said that they were seeking legal opinion regarding the dropped sections. He was at first charged with stalking and bid to kidnapping but most of the charges were resolved this morning.

According to Subhash, BJP is really anxious about unfortunate incidents happening with woman in and around Chandigarh, so he gave this duty to his son to check if the police is working fine. "Subhash Barala has nothing to with the Vikas Barala case. Let law take its own course".

Singhal tried to evade direct questions on the role of the police in trying to shield the main accused, Vikas Barala and his friend Ashish Kumar.

The ordeal that Kundu had to go through is not only terrifying and every woman's worst nightmare in spite of the Nirbhayas of the country facing such trauma and an even worse fate nearly every single day, it is a continuing testament to the appalling VIP culture that is incessantly plaguing the corridors of our land.

"I have a support system behind me and so can take a stand". CREW, an organization of the students of Panjab University, also held a candle march outside Elante Mall, while the National Students' Union of India (NSUI) organized a candle march at Panjab University to demand "strong action" against the "perpetrators of the shameful act". "I suppose it will take her a long time to go back to a normal life", he wrote. "I am the one who was under attack.but they are not questioned". Denying making such comments, Mr. Bhatti said, "What I meant to convey is that it is the responsibility of parents to watch over their children and their activities".
