Describing as “absolutely shocking” the incident of the alleged stalking of a bureaucrat’s daughter in Chandigarh by Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala’s son, the IAS (Central) Association has demanded “exemplary and timely punishment” for such offences.
It also stressed on the need to make India “a safe place” for women.
In a tweet, the IAS body which represents all 5,004 IAS officers working across the country stated, “Absolutely shocking. Time we made our nation a safe place for all women. Exemplary and timely punishment for offences a must.”
Barala’ s 23-year-old son Vikas along with his friend Ashish Kumar was arrested on Saturday for allegedly stalking the woman. However, they were later released on bail as they were booked under bailable sections of the IPC and the Motor Vehicles Act.
