Hisar, Aug 6: After the Opposition sought action against BJP state president Subhash Barala, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said we could not punish minister for his son’s crime.
Speaking to media Kattar 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 directly linked with Subhash Barala but with an individual. So action would be taken against his son”.
On Saturday, Barala’s son Vikas along with his accomplice, Ashish was nabbed by police on charges of stalking and harassing a woman under Section 354 D (stalking) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 185 (Motor Vehicle Act) of the CrPC in Chandigarh and he got bail on the same day.
Both the accused are Law students.
The victim is a daughter of an IAS office, who alleged that Vikas and his friend chased her on their bike in Chandigarh’s Sector 26 area.
Following the incident, the Congress demanded the state government and the police to probe into the matter.
“This is an unfortunate incident. Now, the law and order should take its own course. The government and the police must act,” Congress leader Ashok Tanwar told news agency ANI.
