Honeypreet Insan, who is being questioned by the Panchkula police, has revealed that while absconding, she was living with another Dera Sacha Sauda follower in Bathinda district, said Panchkula police commissioner A S Chawla.

“The lady who was travelling today has confirmed that Honeypreet Insan was living with her for the last many days in a remote location at Bathinda district, where she has land and a house too, which is where Honeypreet was staying,” A S Chawla told media.

This comes from an earlier revelation by the Panchkula police that jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram rahim Singh’s ‘adopted’ daughter Honeypreet Insan was travelling from Guru Sar Modia where Haryana police had conducted raids as well.

“The other lady’s name is Sukhdeep and is also a follower of the Dera,” said Chawla.

He further said that they have deputed senior lady police officers from Haryana for this investigation, adding that Honeypreet Insan’s questioning is still going on.

The police commissioner asserted that Honeypreet is not revealing a lot of details.

“She is not giving many details yet which is why the interrogation is taking a lot of time.”

He also said that the interrogation will continuously proceed, where they will take her in remand after she is presented in the court on Wednesday at 2 pm.

He also asserted that they are verifying the facts that have come to the police, adding that, “We will have to take her to the locations for confirmation.”

Honeypreet was wanted by the police in connection with the violence that broke out in Panchkula in August, the day a court there declared Ram Rahim guilty of rape.

The Delhi high court, on 26 September, rejected the transit anticipatory bail plea of Honeypreet.

For almost 40 days, Haryana police has been tracking leads on Honeypreet in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.
