The Chandigarh police on Wednesday summoned Haryana BJP President Subhash Barala’s son Vikas Barala in connection with stalking case.
The police asked Barala to reach at Sector-26 police station at 11 am for investigation in the matter.
Tejinder Luthra, Chandigarh DGP, said that additional evidence is welcome but they now have sufficient CCTV footage.
Luthra said everything under the sun and effort will be done to ensure justice.
The DGP said,”Vikas Barala refused to accept the notice, therefore, we have pasted the notice on the wall of his residence.”

It is said that Vikas Barala refused to take summon when the police approached him early morning. Later, the police officials pasted the summon at the gate of his residence.
