Honeypreet Insan, adopted ‘daughter’ of Ram Rahim, likely to surrender today

Honeypreet Insan, the adopted daughter of rape convict Ram Rahim Singh, is likely to surrender today before the Panchkula court. The police has been tracking down Honeypreet’s movements for the last couple of days and in all likelihood she is expected to surrender today.

Honeypreet spoke to few news channels claiming innocence against charges levelled against her. Serious charges of sedition, waging war and inciting people for violence have been slammed on Honeypreet. 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.

While talking to a news channel Honeypreet, said that she would surrender before Panchkula court today and also file an application for bail in the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

When asked about her ex-husband Vishwas Gupta and few close followers have accused her of having an illicit relationship with Ram Rahim, she rejected the allegations and appealed to people to think twice before maligning a father-daughter relationship.

Reacting to the reports that she had fled to Nepal, “I was very much in India, I did not go to Nepal,” she told news channel. Honeypreet has been absconding since the conviction of Ram Rahim in the two separate rape cases and was also spotted in Nepal. For quite sometime now, Haryana police also issued a lookout notice for Honeypreet.

Honeypreet has also been accused of hatching the escape plan of Ram Rahim after his conviction. Honeypreet was last seen during Ram Rahim Singh’s pronouncement of the verdict by the CBI court in Panchkula. She was seen outside the court and in a chopper, arranged to take Ram Rahim to Rohtak jail. During the verdict, Honeypreet had appealed to court that she may be given permission to stay with Ram Rahim in the jail as a helper, but the court turned down the request.

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.
