New Delhi: Dera Sacha Sauda’s jailed chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s ‘adopted’ daughter Honeypreet Insan has been spotted in Nepal’s Dharan-Itehari area. According to sources, she may be hiding in Sunsari-Morang district.
The SIT on Sunday arrested a key functionary of the Dera Sacha Sauda, Pradeep Goyal Insan, from Udaipur in Rajasthan. He was close to dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and Honeypreet.
Absence of an extradition treaty between India and Nepal will add to the woes of Haryana Police which has so far failed to trace the whereabouts of Honeypreet Insan and Dr Aditya Insan, both wanted in a sedition case registered in Panchkula.
Dera Sacha Sauda boasts of a big follower base in Nepal. Ram Rahim had visited Nepal in May 2015 after earthquake hit the country and had distributed relief material to the victims.
Nepal Police said that it may not be able to arrest Honeypreet, if found in Nepal, as no case has been registered against her in the country. Haryana Police is yet to approach the Nepal government on the issue.
It’s on the basis of the statement given by Pradeep Goyal, in-charge of Udaipur Dera Sacha Sauda, that police is now zeroing in on possible hideouts of Honeypreet in Nepal. Goel was arrested from Udaipur on Saturday and was brought to Panchkula yesterday. He was produced in the court which sent him to a 7-day police custody.
Earlier this week, police in Bihar, which shares a border with Nepal, had upped vigil in order to apprehend Honeypreet before she could escape to Nepal.
