After her post on being stalked by the son of Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala went viral, Varnika Kundu wretchedly faced more absurd reactions to her story as she was even questioned on being out ‘that late’ when the incident occurred, perhaps ultimately the only reason leading to a hot pursuit like this for some people.
In a follow-up to her incident, BJP vice president in Haryana Ramveer Bhatti had the courtesy to ask the woman who was being stalked, the point of roaming around at night and why she was even allowed to roam around at night?
“Why was she allowed to roam around at night? Parents should not allow their children to stay out late…what is the point of roaming around at night?” Bhatti was quoted as saying.
In a strong retaliation to such vague comment Kundu in an interview to NDTV said, “It is none of his business, it is my business and my family’s what I do and where…If it wasn’t for men like these, I wouldn’t be unsafe going out… whether it was 12 am or 2 am or 4 am.”
“If it happens at night it’s my fault? Can the men not control their urges at night? Why am I being questioned? I am the one who was under attack…but they are not questioned,” she added.
Varnika on Friday had posted details of a dreadful chase on Facebook involving Vikas Barala, who was allegedly stalking her on the streets of Chandigarh in his SUV.
As per reports, she called up the local police during the incident night and mentioned that she was being chased by Vikas along with a friend.
But later, both the accused were released on bail after being booked under sections of the IPC and the Motor Vehicles Act.
