Virender Sehwag condemns Chandigarh stalking incident

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag is highly active on Twitter and usually comments on social issues. He has come out in support of Varnika Kundu, the 29-year-old DJ who was stalked on Chandigarh streets and nearly kidnapped, allegedly by Vikas Barala - son of Haryana's BJP chief Subhash Barala.

Sehwag condemned the incident on Twitter and said that he expects a fair probe to be conducted without anyone's influence. He wrote, "Chandigarh stalking incident is shameful & a fair probe should be done without any influence. Koi bhi ho, Kaayde me rahoge,Faayde me rahoge."

Chandigarh Police has retrieved footage of five CCTV cameras on the route capturing the chase of Kundu’s vehicle by the alleged vehicle.In her Facebook post, Varnika wrote that the men blocked her way, banged on her windows and tried to open the door forcefully. 

“I find it shocking, that in a place with cameras at every light and cops every 200 metres, these boys thought they could either get into my car, or take me into theirs, just because they’re from an influential background,” she wrote in her post.

Vikas Barala and his friend were arrested but let off within hours because the charges against them were bailable. However, the charges of kidnapping are yet to be added, an offense that does not allow bail.
