‘Absconding’ Honeypreet arrested after 38-day run

Honeypreet Insan arrested
Panchkula: After a month-long search for Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s adopted ‘daughter’, Haryana Police today arrested Honeypreet Insan. ‘Papa’s angel’, the description on her Twitter profile, has been handed over to the Panchkula police (Haryana Police) by the Mohali police (Punjab police).

Honeypreet had been on the run for the past 38 days since Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s conviction in twin rape cases on August 25.

Honeypreet said today that she was “devastated” by allegations that she incited the Panchkula violence.

She told a TV news channel that her “papa” was innocent and that his conviction on August 25 in two rape cases has left her “depressed”.

Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet, who tops the list of 43 people ‘wanted’ by the Haryana Police in connection with the incidents of violence that left at least 41 people dead and several injured following Ram Rahim’s conviction, said she was seeking legal opinion on her next step and was likely to move the Punjab and Haryana high court.

Honeypreet, 36, against whom a lookout notice and later an arrest warrant was issued by the Haryana Police, told reporter that allegations levelled against her are not true.
