Varnika Kundu stalking case: Barala gets bail from HC

Varnika Kundu stalking case: Barala gets bail from HC”

Barala and his friend Ashish Kumar, who remains in judicial custody and is yet to move the HC for bail, were arrested on August 9 a year ago.

Citing her harrowing experience on the fateful night when she was allegedly stalked by Vikas Barala and his friend Ashish Kumar, Varnika stood by her allegations and reiterated the entire sequence of events in the court.

In addition, Varnika quashed the defence's contentions that her father V S Kundu, who is a senior IAS officer of Haryana cadre, exercised persistent pressure on the police to fabricate evidence and implicate Vikas and Ashish.

Varnika admitted an advocate, Rajdeep Takoria, was present at the police station when the FIR was registered.

The bail plea of the duo was rejected four times earlier by the trial court.

His petition for bail had been dismissed four times by a trial court. "The court has assured us that if Barala tries to influence the witnesses, we can apply for cancellation of bail", he said.

Vikas Barala, who has been lodged in Burail jail here, is pursuing a law degree from the Kurukshetra University.

Barala had moved the high court in November, after a local court denied him bail for the fourth time.

The woman had accused Vikas Barala (23) and his friend Kumar (27) of stalking and attempting to abduct her. Congress routinely slammed BJP and even alleged at one point that the Home Ministry was shielding Vikas Barala. The incident had come to light when the 29-year-old woman called the police and complained that two men followed her in an SUV when she was driving in her auto from the Sector-8 market in Chandigarh towards her home in Panchkula.

They were arrested again on August 9 after they joined the police investigation and were charged with attempted abduction under sections 365 and 511 of the IPC.
