Chandigarh (Punjab/Haryana) [India], Dec 20 (ANI): Punjab and Haryana High Court has ordered the Chandigarh Police to provide information on call details of Vikas Barala, son of Haryana Bharatiya Janata Party President Subhash Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar in connection with the Varnika Kundu stalking case.

The court has also deferred the hearing in the case to January 11.

Earlier on October 13, a Chandigarh court framed Vikas Barala on charges of stalking and attempting to kidnap the senior IAS officer's daughter.

The incident, which took place on August 4, created a ruckus across the country, when Kundu accused Vikas and his friend Ashish Kumar of following her car in the middle of the night in Chandigarh.

The two men were then arrested on the basis of her complaint but were released on bail, as they were booked under bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Motor Vehicles Act.

However, they were arrested again on August 9 under sections 365 (Kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine person) and 511 (attempt to commit punishable offence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). (ANI)
