Vikas Barala, son of Haryana BJP Chief Subhash Barala, along with his friend Ashish Kumar were arrested on Saturday for allegedly harassing the daughter of an IAS officer.
Vikas Barala, son of Haryana BJP Chief Subhash Barala, along with his friend Ashish Kumar were arrested on Saturday for allegedly harassing the daughter of an IAS officer, but they managed to get bail. The victim, Varnika Kundu, while speaking to Times Now on Monday, said, “Their (the accused) entire aim from the first second till the last was just to get my car to stop.” She said that she saw no logic in Vikas and his friend’s attempt at stopping her car during night. Varnika felt “terrorized” due to the behaviour of the accused, who were not just allegedly following her but also driving parallel to her car. “They were terrorizing me and they were trying to hit my car,” Varnika told Times Now.
According to Varnika, when she looked into their car, while they were constantly harassing her, she saw there were two men sitting inside. She could only see the front portion of the car and did not get a chance to see if there was anyone in the backseat, too. “It was an SUV so, there could have been seven-eight (people),” she told Times Now in her interview on Monday. When asked about the person, who jumped out of the car to harass her, Varnika said she did not know him. All she knew that it was Subhash Barala’s son Vikas Barala who was driving the car. Both the accused were continuously making a gesture for her to stop the car while Varnika’s only focus was to get to a safe place as soon as possible.

In her interview with Times Now, Varnika said even in the presence of a number of people on the road, Vikas and his friend put their car in front of hers to stop her. While she tried to reverse her car, Vikas’ friend jumped out and tried to open the door of Varnika’s car, that was when the two accused were caught by cops. “This guy (the person sitting next to the driver) had his door almost half open a lot of times, probably waiting for an opportunity where I would stop the car and he could, may be, jump out,” Varnika said in her interview.
