Stalking: Footage shows car being chased by SUV
Footage from five CCTV cameras was retrieved by Chandigarh police which is probing the alleged stalking of an IAS officer's daughter by a Haryana BJP leader's son and his friend, officials said.
Meanwhile, purported CCTV visuals surfaced showing a car being followed by the SUV. However, the faces of the persons occupying the vehicles or their registration numbers were not clearly visible in the 11-second long footage which was aired by several news channels.
Police officials, however, said that they had retrieved the footage from five CCTV cameras.
"We are analysing the CCTV footages," said Chandigarh SSP Eish Singhal.

Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala's son Vikas (23) and Ashish Kumar (27) were arrested for allegedly stalking the woman. However, both were released later on bail as they were booked under bailable sections of the IPC and the Motor Vehicles Act.
