Over five months after he was arrested for stalking and attempt to abduct the daughter of a senior IAS officer, Vikas Barala, the son of Haryana BJP president Subhash Barala, was on Thursday granted bail by the Punjab and Haryana High Court here.

According to a report inHindustan Times, call records proffered by Barala's lawyer showed Kundu wasn't in the city right before the incident on the intervening night of 4 August and 5 August previous year.

The high court also directed the trial court to complete the cross-examination of Varnika Kundu before January 11, said Barala's counsel Vinod Ghai. They were arrested after the girl filed a police complaint against them.

Earlier, the court had ordered the Chandigarh Police to provide information on call details of Barala, son and his friend Ashish Kumar.

A single judge bench of Justice Lisa Gill granted him and his friend and co-accused Ashish Kumar bail. It was also argued that the accused belonged to a well-connected political family and it was possible that he may use his clout to influence the trial of the case, if released on bail.

"No application was moved by the prosecution in the court on whether the alleged accused has so far tried to influence anybody in the matter", he said.

The two men were arrested on the intervening night of August 4-5 a year ago following the complaint, but were released on bail as they were booked under bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Motor Vehicles Act.

Barala's lawyer had told the court, "The investigating agency had added section 354D of the IPC (stalking) without applying its mind".
