Vikas barala son of Haryana BJP President Subhash Barala’s and his friend Ashish Kumar were sent to judicial custody by a court. They are under police custody for two days as Chandigarh police demands two day custody on Wednesday. On Saturday Chandigarh police said to the court that they did not seek further custody. The police had earlier sought their remand to reconstruct the crime scene.
Both were re-arrested on Wednesday after they were booked under non-bailable offences, including attempt to abduct Varnika Kundu, under Section 365 (kidnapping or abduction with intent to confine person) and Section 511 (attempt to commit offence punishable with life imprisonment) of the Indian Penal Code.
Vikas and Ashish have denied that they intended to abduct the woman, who is a disc jockey. Varnika Kundu, 29, daughter of Haryana Additional Chief Secretary V.S. Kundu, had complained to police that the two accused had stalked and intimidated her and tried to abduct her on August 4-5 night.
