Chandigarh district court dismisses Barala's bail application for the fourth time

14 November, 2017

Vikas Barala, son of Haryana BJP chief,  got no relief from court yet again as the Chandigarh district court on Monday dismissed his bail application for the fourth time.

Barala (23), is the main accused in the stalking case of disc jockey Varnika Kundu, the daughter of IAS officer VS Kundu. The court of additional district and sessions judge Rajnish K Sharma dismissed the bail petition after looking into the gravity and seriousness of the offences involved.

Various lawyers were seen discussing as to what made Barala not file the bail plea in the high court, given that it had already been rejected so many times in the trial court.

The defence counsel Rabinder Pandit in the bail application said the chargesheet has been filed in the matter and the investigation was also completed, so Barala’s custody is not required and hence, he should be granted bail.

The plea also claims that the case had a fabricated first-information report (FIR) and that the statements given by Varnika Kundu and her father, VS Kundu, had contradictions.
