Vikas Barala and Ashish have been charged with stalking and attempt to abduct Varnika Kundu. Charges were framed against the duo at the district courts in Chandigarh here on Friday. The charges are under sections 354 D, 365 and 341 of the IPC. The trial will begin on October 27.

Son of Haryana BJP chief, Subhash Barala, Vikas has twice been denied bail and is in Burail jail currently. 

On August 5, Vikas, a law student of Kurukshetra University, and his friend Ashish, a law graduate, had allegedly followed Varnika and tried to abduct her.
