Reports allege loopholes in victim’s allegations against Haryana BJP chief’s son in stalking case

In August 2017, Varnika Kundu a Chandigarh based DJ had alleged that Vikas Barala, the son of BJP Haryana chief Subhash Barala had stalked her while she was driving home.

She had alleged that Barala and his friend were drunk and were trying to dangerously swerve their car towards her. Further they allegedly blocked her car and later, one of them even got out of their car and started to walk towards her.

Around that time, she dialled 100 in panic and sensing the urgency in her voice, a PCR van came and nabbed the accused. Kundu later took to Facebook to recount her horror which caused a major outrage and a demand to punish Barala and his friend.

Soon after the incident there were allegations of a cover-up, like certain charges slapped against the accused getting dropped to facilitate their bail. It was reported, that the victim’s plea about it being a possible kidnapping was ignored. It was also alleged that some CCTV footage had not been collected, possibly deliberately. It later emerged that some of the CCTV footage wasn’t available since the cameras were non functional and there was no cover up, per police.

A few days later, it was reported that Vikas Barala had allegedly confessed before the Chandigarh police that he was following Kundu’s car.

Now in a possible twist in the tale, reports have come out to allege that there are certain loopholes in the victim’s allegations.

As reported, call records of Kundu contradict the original statement given by her to the court. As per that, she had reached sector 8’s inner market in Chandigarh at 11.40 pm on August 4, but her call records allegedly point towards her being in Chamkaur Sahib, Ropar at 11:23 PM, about an hour before the incident . This region is 50 KM away from Chandigarh. Her location at 12:33 AM the next day, showed Sector 26, Chandigarh.

This contradiction in the location has been alleged by the defence lawyer, who is seen trying to discredit parts of her testimony. This allegation has been denied by Kundu.

The lawyer has also alleged that Kundu wasn’t present in the police station, during the filing of the complaint and that her father, an IAS officer had written it and had forged her signature at the end.

It remains to be seen what is the result of such revelations and whether further details might emerge in the matter
