"If we do not persist in trying to bring the guilty to justice, more and more daughters will suffer this hurt", he wrote in a Facebook post on August 5. This is my official stand on this matter.
The Chandigarh Police late on Monday night said it retrieved CCTV footage that supported a disc jockey's charge that the Haryana BJP chief's son and his friend followed her auto in a midnight chase.
"Whether or not we win this, I know it has raised awareness. The Chandigarh Police are doing their job as any professional force does", she said.
Jagmati Sangwan, the head of All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA) called for the resignation of Subhash, claiming he had pressured police to drop charges of attempted kidnapping and sexual assault against his son. She described how they tried to intercept her auto at least three times that night. Following this, according to the complaint, the woman quickly reversed her vehicle and managed to get away. When the police will present an invoice in the court, then if I feel that there is nothing wrong then I will keep my point there. "But what I can still say is that if the police work in a way that they are supposed to, such criminals [referring to her case] can never evade the law".

She wrote on her Facebook page that Vikas and his associate chased and accosted her in a white SUV late on Friday night and tried to even bang on her vehicle. Chandigarh police was pretty efficient and helpful. They were instead arrested for stalking and drunken driving, which are bailable offences, unlike attempt to kidnap, which is non-bailable. "If any section has to be added at a later stage, we will do it", he said, while trying to evade direct questions on the role of the Chandigarh Police in trying to shield the main accused, Vikas Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar.
Mumbai/New Delhi: The Shiv Sena on Sunday ridiculed the saffron party for boasting about its various "schemes" for women when on the other hand its leaders are harassing women.
"This is extremely clear that BJP is pressurising Chandigarh administration and hatching conspiracy to protect the son of its political leader".
While Haryana's opposition Congress accused the Centre and the BJP of "conspiring to hush up" the case against the son of Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said he would file a PIL in the Punjab and Haryana High Court for a court-monitored CBI probe.
