Impartial Action in Chandigarh Stalking Case Needed

8th Aug Aaj Ki Baat The case involving the midnight stalking of an IAS officer’s daughter Varnika Kundu by two youths, including the son of Haryana state BJP chief, raises several questions. These questions need to be addressed. One, why were lighter IPC sections included in the original FIR against Vikas Barala and his associate, two, why did Chandigarh police trust the statements of the accused more, instead of relying on the victim’s statement, and three, how did the CCTV footages of all cameras on the route found missing. It must be understood that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign from Haryana, and the son of the BJP chief in that very state tried to stalk and kidnap a woman in the middle of the night. If the police is found shielding the culprits, a wrong message will go out. There must be impartial action in this stalking case.
