Chandigarh stalking case: Vikas Barala, friend's bail pleas rejected for fourth time

"Namaskar, I am Vikas Barala".

Post Barala's statement, Varnika reportedly said that the proclamation made by him is an "absolute lie".

"I will not call it an embarrassment, we trusted the system and the judiciary from the beginning itself, not opposing the decision as of now", Varnika told ANI.

Addressing the people Vikas says "You all have been hearing a lot of talk about me". Though he had blamed media pressure for the wrongful restraint (IPC 341) and attempted abduction (IPC 365/511) charges in his case, a video was circulated by the family in the media through a PR agency on Saturday afternoon.

He strongly condemns the turn of events against him and rather complains that in these five months not once was he approached for his side of the story. "Many believed that I was guilty without listening to what I have to say", Barala added.


Earlier on Friday, immediately after his release, Vikas Barala visited a temple in Sector 44 Chandigarh, where he met his mother and other family members. "They went through unbearable pain and suffered untold trauma".

Kundu's counsel opposed bail on the grounds that the offence was of a serious nature, as he had chased her for around five kilometres.

In the video, Vikas is apparently reading from a script.

"My father is the state president of a political party and many political parties for this very reason are targeting me in an effort to tarnish his political image", Vikas adds. "I am the real victim here", Barala said in the video. He rubbished all the molestation and eve-teasing charges levelled against him and urged the public to only believe in "facts".

When contacted, Varnika Kundu termed the video a "PR stunt". I am not surprised that someone, despite being a law student, could so brazenly commit the crime that night. She was driving by herself in Chandigarh when the duo began to follow her.
