Days after police arrested Vikas Barala and Ashish Kumar in the stalking case, Chandigarh court on Saturday sent both the accused to Judicial Custody till August 25 for further investigation. However, based on the public prosecutor's plea, the court granted two-day police custody of the accused on grounds that they were needed to reconstruct the crime scene and establishing motive behind the crime. Two non-bailable sections have also been added to try to kidnap the case registered against Vikas Barla, after which the arrest has been made.

The development comes after the police earlier released a video footage showing the one of the accused (Ashish) buying alcohol before chasing Varnika Kundu's vehicle on the night of August 4.

Meanwhile, after CM Khattar, his cabinet colleagues including outspoken minister Anil Vij have now come out in defence of the state BJP President Subhash Barala whose son Vikas is current behind bars.

There was a massive outrage on streets and in the Parliament regarding the stalking incident, with the Congress accusing the ruling party of protecting the accused.


In another damning evidence in the Chandigarh stalking case, a CCTV footage has been recovered of August 4th which clearly shows accused Vikas Barala purchasing alcohol before chasing down Varnika Kunda at midnight.

Subhash Barala, however, rebuffed the claim of pressurising or influencing the police in the case.

Meanwhile, investigators are still clueless about the whereabouts of the auto and the persons accused, police said on Friday. Moreover, IPC 365 and 511 have been filed against them. They were, however, granted bail on the same day.
