Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja and described herself as ‘Papa’s Angel’, travelled to different places with the dera head and knew people in the corridors of power. She did not find much time to sleep on her first night in the custody at the Chandimandir police station as her interrogation went on till 1am following which she was taken to the General Hospital, Sector 6, as she complained of chest pain, officials said.

She was at the hospital till 3am and then taken back. Her questioning started at 6pm, hours she was arrested from the Patiala-Zirakpur highway on Tuesday along with a woman.

Her questioning, being recorded on camera, resumed at 7am on Wednesday. She was offered chapati and dal.

Doctors at the hospital said except a minor migraine problem, she has no health problem. Another medical check-up was conducted on her before she was produced in court in the afternoon.

Evasive in her replies

Honeypreet was evasive in her replies about her whereabouts and her role in inciting violence when she was questioned by inspector general of police (IGP) Mamta Singh.

She was also asked about the last time she made a call to Aditya Insan and Pawan, who are absconding besides the amount of money allegedly sent to Panchkula before violence broke out.

She was also asked about the role of the 45-member dera core committee in the entire incident following the conviction of Ram Rahim.
