Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan’s adopted daughter Honeypreet has finally come out of her hiding. She was absconding for over a month ever since the Dera Chief was sentenced in connection with rape charges.
Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet was in the Haryana police’s wanted list since Aug 25th. The police had alleged that she incited violence after Gurmeet’s arrest. Honeypreet in an interview to a TV channel that she was “devasted” to hear the allegations against her.
She also said that she had no illicit relationship with papa ji. She was only serving her duty as a daughter by being with him. She said she went into depression when her papa was sent to jail.
“Was I present with the arsonists (during the mayhem in Panchkula on August 25), how are they levelling such allegations(inciting violence),”
she said while sitting inside a car at an undisclosed location.
“I cannot understand how anyone can point fingers at pious relations that are there between a father and his daughter. What proof have these people got to level such allegations. All those who are spreading such rumours, please do not believe them.”
she said responding to the allegations by her ex-husband Vishwas Gupta.
On being asked about skeletons being buried inside the Dera at Sirsa and the sect chief’s exploitation of some female disciples, Honeypreet said,
“Did anyone find skeletons. As regards what is being said about my Papa, he is innocent and in times to come you will see this..”
Honeypreet, had earlier been booked at Sector 5 police station in Panchkula. The police added her name in FIR number 345 as an accused in connection with the violence. Several teams of the Haryana Police have travelled across the country, including the Indo-Nepal border, to trace Honeypreet.
