In yet another instance of victim blaming, vice president of BJP in Haryana, Ramveer Bhatti, blamed the victim in the Chandigarh stalking case for driving “so late in the night”. According to CNN-News18, Bhatti said, “The girl should not have gone out at 12 in the night. Why was she driving so late in the night? The atmosphere is not right. We need to take care of ourselves.”
Bhatti’s remarks come in the wake of the ongoing pressure from the opponent, on Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala’s resignation as Barala’s son is involved in the case. However, in a telephonic conversation with ABP News, Bhatti reiterated his lines by saying “parents should take care of their daughters. They should not be allowed to roam out of the house late in the night. They should come back home on time.”Subhash Barala
Defending Barala, Haryana chief minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, on Sunday had said Subhash Barala had “nothing to do with the incident”. Notably, Vikas Barala and his accomplice Ashish followed the woman in their SUV from the Sector 7 area. Both were arrested from the Housing Board light early on Saturday following the complaint of the woman, Varnika Kundu. Kundu shared her traumatic experience in a Facebook post where she gave in details of how the duo tried to block her way and at one point even walked towards her vehicle after blocking the way. She then called up the police control and gave the plate number of the SUV following her which led to their arrest. In her Facebook post, she also explained that she was extremely lucky to have escaped as the police patrolling party arrived just when the alleged criminals were attempting to kidnap her.
Deputy Superintendent of Police, East, Satish Kumar said that the youth were arrested and booked under section 354 D (for stalking a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 341 IPC (wrongful restraint) was later added against the accused.
