Chandigarh, Aug 8 (IBNS): Breaking his silence, BJP's Haryana unit chief Subhash Barala on Tuesday said the woman, who alleged that Vikas Barala stalked her, was like his 'daughter'.

"Varnika is like my daughter," the BJP leader told media on the victim Varnika Kundu.

He said no move was made to influence the investigation process in the case.

Police arrested Vikas Barala, the 23-year-old son of BJP’s Subhash Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar, 27, from the Housing Board light point late on Friday night.

Both were later released on bail.

The Chandigarh Police on Monday said they are doing everything to help the victim.

Giving an update on the stalking case, the Chandigarh police said: "Technical analysis is going on."

The police refused to give any details of the ongoing investigation to the media.

Speaking about the charges, the police said: "We will give the sections (frame charges) which are demanding."

The victim Varnika Kundu, who is a video jockey, alleged on Friday night her car was followed by a Tata Safari Storm (HR-23G-1008).

According to her, the men driving the SUV were drunk and pulled up close to her car several time.

She alleged that they even tried to block her way to force her to other routes.

She claimed that at one point, the SUV blocked her way and the person in the co-driver’s seat got down and started walking towards her vehicle.

She then  reversed the vehicle and started moving. However, the men continued to follow her.

The girl then called up the 100 helpline and gave the number details of the SUV and her location.

In a latest development to the Chandigarh stalking case, the police on Tuesday said the CCTV footage of the night is available.
