New Delhi: Honeypreet Insan approached the Delhi High Court seeking transit anticipatory bail on Monday. Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet, the “adopted daughter” of the jailed Dera chief, tops the list of 43 persons ‘wanted’ by the Haryana Police in connection with incidents of violence that had followed Ram Rahim’s conviction in the rape cases.
Several teams of Haryana Police have travelled across the country, including the Indo-Nepal border, to trace the whereabouts of Honeypreet. Earlier, a lookout notice was issued against Honeypreet by the police.
The former husband of Honeypreet made explosive revelations about the relationship shared between her and the Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. Gupta accused Honeypreet and Ram Rahim of having illicit relations and said their father-daughter relationship was a sham to befool followers and others.
He has claimed that he saw Ram Rahim and Honeypreet in a compromising situation in the dera chief’s ‘gufa’ or private accommodation on the sprawling campus near Sirsa town in Haryana.
Ram Rahim was convicted by the special CBI court in Panchkula on August 25, following which violence and arson had erupted in Panchkula and Sirsa districts of Haryana which had left 41 people dead and several others injured.The CBI court on August 28 had sentenced Ram Rahim to 20 years in prison for raping two of his disciples in 2002.
Honeypreet had accompanied the Dera head when he had come to the special CBI court on August 25. She had also travelled along with him in the special chopper which ferried them to Rohtak from Panchkula after the conviction.
