On the run for over a month, Honeypreet Insan, the adopted daughter of jailed godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, was finally taken into custody by the Haryana police.
She was handed over to the Haryana police by the Punjab police, according to multiple reports in the media.
Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet 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.
Hours before her arrest, she told the News 24 channel that she was “devastated and depressed” by the allegations against “Papa” and her. “When Papa went away (was jailed), my world came crashing down,” she said.Honeypreet Insan went missing after she accompanied Ram Rahim in a special chopper taking him to a Rohtak jail on August 25.
“Have you heard me saying a word where I instigate people? I had gone there (to CBI court in Panchkula) with a hope that my father will return by evening, but when he was held guilty, I went into depression, How could I think about anything else? I was totally devastated,” she said.
Reacting indignantly to her ex-husband Vishwas Gupta’s allegations that her father-daughter relationship with Ram Rahim is fake, she said: “I cannot understand how anyone can point fingers at pious relations that are there between a father and his daughter. What proof do they have? Please don’t believe such people.”
