Haryana BJP president must quit: Congress

In a major development in the Chandigarh stalking case, the police now agree to have obtained the CCTV footage which shows the victim being chased by Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala's son Vikas Barala and his friend last weekend.

The two have been granted bail and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has maintained that the "father (Haryana BJP chief) can not be held responsible for his son's actions". It remains to be seen whether the BJP central leadership will take action against the wrongdoers in this horrific incident especially since Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised zero tolerance to crimes against women. "It is very embarrassing", Shiv Sena leader Manish Kayande said following the arrest of BJP state president Subhash Barala's son on stalking charges.

Congress Vice President also tweeted condemning the stalking and said that the BJP government must punish the guilty, not collude with the culprits and the mindset they represent.

On Aug 5, Vikas Barala was arrested on the charges of stalking and harassing the IAS officer's daughter in Chandigarh. They were later released on bail.

The victim's family alleged that the ambulance brushed Nagpal's vehicle which infuriated the BJP leader who chased the ambulance and stopped it.

Chandigarh SSP Eish Singhal on Monday said that the police were in the process of taking CCTV footage wherein the girl was allegedly stalked. When the police will present an invoice in the court, then if I feel that there is nothing wrong then I will keep my point there. In particular, Cannon cut the key questions related to the CCTV footage.

The victim alleged that the youths tried to intimidate her and abduct her. Saini said that before the blame game to protect the party's image begins, Subhash Barala must resign. The goons must be punished, and the law must take its course. The second adjournment came after the leaders of both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Aam Aadmi Party shouted slogans demanding discussions on different topics.

But under political pressure, the police did not slap kidnapping charges on Kuldeep and others. In this case, many questions are being raised about CCTV footage. "Parents must take care of their children. they shouldn't allow them to roam at night".

Meanwhile, facing accusations by the opposition for "shielding" the state BJP chief's son in the incident, the Centre asked for a report of the incident from the Chandigarh administration. Kuldeep Barala had reportedly posted pictures of Varnika on Facebook, where she is with two men, and implied that she was drunk at the time of the incident. She just wants girls to empower themselves and speak up when they think anything wrong goes against them.
