The Quint's 'Talking Stalking' campaign started after the Chandigarh car stalking case in August 2017. When the accused in the case were let out on bail despite severe allegations against them, we started looking at the efficacy of the stalking law in the country.

Stalking in India is still a bailable offence. As a result, the survivors are often unsure of reporting it because chances are that the stalker will come back and harm the survivor further. When an offence is bailable, the accused has to furnish no proof to defend himself or herself. Thus the process usually agonizes the accused further risking the life of the survivor.

Thus, we rolled out a campaign to make stalking a non-bailable offence. We found an ally in MP Dr Shashi Tharoor who presented a private member's to make stalking a non-bailable offence, bill co-drafted with The Quint.

The AAP too has passed a resolution to make stalking a non-bailable offence in the Delhi state.
