Abduction charges framed against Vikas Barala

Abduction charges framed against Vikas Barala

A district court here on Friday framed charges of attempted abduction and stalking against Vikas Barala, son of Haryana BJP President Subhash Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar.

The court of judicial magistrate first class (JMIC) Barjinder Pal Singh pronounced the order stating that all the charges in the FIR have been added in the chargesheet filed by the police.

The incident, which took place on August 4, created a ruckus across the country, when Kundu accused Vikas and his friend Ashish Kumar of following her vehicle in the middle of the night in Chandigarh.

On Monday, the court had fixed October 11 as the date of the commencement of arguments on framing of charges in the stalking case involving Vikas Barala.

"I'm glad the judge sees it the same way I do".

Varnika, who attended the last two hearings, wasn't present when the charges against Vikas and Ashish were framed. Her father, who was out town, also said he was happy to know of the development.

Both were booked under non-bailable offences, including attempt to abduct Varnika under Section 365 (kidnapping or abduction with intent to confine person) and Section 511 (attempt to commit offence punishable with life imprisonment) of the IPC.
