Haryana stalking case: Govt must punish guilty, not collude with culprits, says Rahul Gandhi


New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday condemned the alleged stalking of a woman by the son of a senior Haryana BJP leader in Chandigarh, saying the state government must punish the guilty and not "collude" with culprits and the mindset they represent.

Gandhi took to twitter to condemn the incident without naming anyone, a day after Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala's son, Vikas and his friend Ashish Kumar were arrested for allegedly stalking the girl and released on bail soon after.

The girl had accused Vikas and his friend Ashish Kumar of stalking her Friday night after which they were arrested, the police said.


Both were booked under section 354 D (stalking) of IPC and 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs), they said.
