The girl, who was stalked by Haryana BJP state president Subhash Barala's son Vikas on Saturday, thanked the Chandigarh Police for their quick action. However, she also pointed out that if she was a common man’s daughter then the case wouldn’t be taken with utmost importance.
While speaking to media, the victim said, "I was coming back to my home when they started stalking me. They tried to threaten me by trying to stop my car. Suddenly, they came in front of my car and blocked the way. I reversed my car immediately and called the police. Police heard whole the matter and assured me of providing the help. Soon the police came and arrested the accused. I am very thankful to Chandigarh Police who came to my rescue on time."
"I'm lucky, it seems, to not be the daughter of a common man, because what chance would they have against such VIPs? I'm also lucky, because I'm not lying raped and murdered in a ditch somewhere," she wrote it on her Facebook post.
Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that state BJP President Subhash Barala cannot be punished for his son Vikas Barala’s crime. His statement came after the Opposition’s continuous demand of taking action against Subhash for son’s deeds.
While speaking to the media, Khattar said, "I came to know about this incident. Chandigarh Police has filed the complaint and I believe they will take appropriate action. This matter is not related with Subhash Barala but with an individual. So action would be taken against his son."
BJP state president’s son Vikas was detained by Chandigarh police on charges of stalking a girl on Saturday. However, Vikas was granted bail on the same day.
