Varnika accused Vikas Barala, son of Haryana BJP Chief Subhash Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar, of tailing her around 12.15 AM on early Saturday morning. This case has nothing to do with Subhash Barala.
"Will the BJP now adhere to the same standards as the Congress had accepted the demand and the minister had resigned from his post and his son faced trial".
Hundreds took part in protests across the state on Monday and burned effigies of Barala, Sangwan said. In contrast, a party functionary from Chandigarh, Ramveer Bhatti had a foot in the mouth moment when he raised a question about why the victim Varnika Kundu was out so late in the night.
He also said that the Chandigarh Police have reconstructed the crime scene and CCTV footages are being checked.
Vikas, 23, and his friend, Ashish Kumar, 27, were arrested and released on bail. "In the letter [to the police], we have asked them to conduct a quick, immediate, fair and free investigation in the case and let us know what is happening in every stage", she said.
Kundu and AIDWA want the police to press the harsher charges of attempted kidnapping and sexual assault against the suspects.
"Unfortunately, the police and the judicial system come under a lot of pressure from the so-called VVIPs and that is not correct".
Her father said that "unless somebody from the family (of the accused) was trying to sabotage the investigations, we are very clear".
Walking the caste tightrope in the Haryana politics, the BJP has ruled out resignation of the state unit party chief Subhash Barala. "Lower-rank police officers have performed their duty well, but it high-ranking officers appeared to have come under pressure - or that this the impression that has gone out", an IAS officer said, describing the responses received on one of the IAS officers' WhatsApp groups. 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. "Parents must take care of their children. they shouldn't allow them to roam at night".
After becoming the target for criticism, Kundu called this a "well established tactic to intimidate her" so that she backed off. "I have already told my daughters about this and asked them to be prepared". "So action would be taken against his son", said Khattar. Singhal dodged the issue and said, "I can brief about this only when the technical analysis is complete".
As the controversy swirled, highlighting the vulnerability of women even in public spaces, the woman at the centre of it all said she was grateful for all the support. Also, the way the families are being commented on social media, the people of the family are upset too. The hashtag ChandigarhStalking was the top trend on Twitter all through the day on Monday.
