Home minister Rajnath Singh may make a statement in Parliament on Wednesday on the incident of alleged stalking of a woman in Chandigarh, an official said here.

The home ministry has received a report from the Chandigarh Police on the incident. The son of Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala, Vikash, and his friend Ashish Kumar were arrested for allegedly stalking a 29-year-old woman last week.

“The ministry has received a report on the incident. It is a statement of facts. The ministry is examining the report. The home minister may make a statement in Parliament tomorrow (Wednesday),” the official said.

Vikas, 23, and Ashish, 27, were arrested for allegedly stalking the daughter of a senior IAS officer in Chandigarh.
