Haryana BJP president Subhash Barala' son Vikas Barla, who was arrested in connection with high-profile stalking case of a girl in Chandigarh, was released from jail on Friday.

While accepting his bail plea, Justice Lisa Gill warned Vikas not to try to influence the trial, going on in a Chandigarh court.

A 29-year-old woman has accused Vikas and one of his friends of stalking and trying to kidnap her in August last year.

Barala's counsel had sought a regular bail from the court, submitting that his client had been behind the bars for almost four months and should be granted bail.

Speaking on the same, the case victim Varnika Kundu said she is okay with the bail as long as Vikas Barala abides by the terms and conditions laid out by the court.

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.

Barala, the son of the Haryana BJP chief, and his friend Ashish Kumar were arrested on the intervening night of August 4 and 5 following a complaint by the woman. She also stood by her allegations and reiterated the entire sequence of events in the court, according to another report in The Indian Express.

The two men were arrested on the intervening night of August 4-5 previous year 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.

However, they were arrested again on 9 August and were then charged with attempted abduction under Sections 365 and 511 of the IPC.
