New Delhi: Urging the Centre to direct the Chandigarh police to add “relevant sections” of the IPC in a case filed against the Haryana BJP chief’s son for allegedly stalking a woman, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Jaihind asked to ensure a fair probe into the matter.

In a letter to home minister Rajnath Singh, Ms Jaihind also urged him to take strict action against those who, as a part of ‘conspiracy’, are allegedly spreading false rumours about the complainant and her family members on social media.

 

Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala’s son Vikas (23) and another person Ashish Kumar (27) were earlier arrested for allegedly stalking the 29-year-old woman. Howe-ver, both were released on bail, as they were booked under bailable sections of the IPC and the Motor Vehicles Act. Opposition parties have been alleging that attempts were being made to ‘protect’ the son of ‘an influential person’ by ‘watering down’ the case.

The cops have dropped charges of harassment, attempt to kidnap and outraging the modesty of a woman without any judicial proceedings, they have alleged. Ms Jaihind also expressed disappointment over Haryana BJP chief ‘supporting’ his son instead of siding with the woman and said he should have resigned the post.
