"The bail of Vikas Barala has been approved by Justice Lisa Gill", Barala's counsel Vinod Ghai said.

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

Varnika Kundu, 29, daughter of Haryana Additional Chief Secretary V.S. Kundu, had complained to police that the two accused, who were drunk, had stalked and intimidated her and tried to abduct her on August 4-5 night.

The Chandigarh Police had arrested the duo under non-bailable sections.

His lawyer had moved the high court for regular bail in November after a local court denied him bail for the fourth time.

Her cross-examination was held in the district court on January 9 and yesterday.

Speaking to NDTV in August past year, Ms Kundu had said she would like to see a change in the status of women in India.

He said that the defence told the court that the accused would not influence anybody in the case. It was also mentioned that he had been behind bars for more than five months, and there was no allegation of influencing the trial so far.

Today, Vikas was granted bail.

After hearing both the parties, the court accepted the arguments of accused's counsel and granted bail with some conditions. "We have full faith in the functioning of our judicial system".

Barala's counsel had sought a regular bail from the court, submitting that his client had been behind the bars for almost four months and should be granted bail. For attracting section 354D, it is necessary that a man follows a woman and contacts or attempts to contact such woman to foster personal interaction repeatedly despite a clear indication of disinterest by such woman.
