Absconding for over a month, the ‘adopted’ daughter of rape convict and self-styled Godman Ram Rahim Singh was convicted, Honeypreet Insan on Tuesday was arrested and is currently in Haryana Police’s custody. According to Panchkula Police Commissioner, Honeypreet will be produced in the court tomorrow.

Honeypreet Insan, who was on the run after rape convict and Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim Singh was sentenced to 20 years of prison, had also been spotted in Nepal, while the police teams were trying to nab her. 

The ‘adopted’ daughter of Ram Rahim Singh has been accused of serious charges of sedition, waging war and inciting people for violence after Dera chief was pronounced guilty by the special CBI court.

In an application filed by her, Honeypreet said that she was not involved in these violent events that took place after Ram Rahim‘s conviction.

According to reports, few days before, Honeypreet has expressed her desire to surrender herself to the law and enforcement agencies. Earlier, she was expected to surrender before the Punjab and Haryana High Court but a discussion by her counsel, she might surrender before the Panchkula court.

The police, which is making efforts to arrest Honeypreet Insan, had raided various location in order to track her down. It is being informed by the sources that the police is very close to Honeypreet and would like to arrest before she surrenders.

While the search to track down Honeypreet Insan is on, some sources had revealed that Honeypreet and her aides, who are helping her stay away, have switched to chat applications like WhatsApp with new numbers that they seem to have acquired, as they fear that their phones were being tapped.

Earlier on September 26, a bail plea filed by Honeypreet Insan’s lawyer was rejected by the Delhi High court. Honeypreet Insan had sought transit anticipatory bail from the Delhi High Court.
