Honeypreet, whose actual name is Priyanka Taneja, remained an escapee for 38 days later that she was booked by the Haryana Police because of the charge of sedition. She was detained on Tuesday from the Zirakpur-Patiala highway, about 15 km from Chandigarh.
Police sources supposed that Honeypreet was queried by the SIT officials and women police officials for numerous hours following her arrest at the Chandimandir police station here. A police officer concerned in the questioning said “She was elusive in her replies concerning her whereabouts and her task in provocative fighting and providing funding to those behind the fighting. We are interrogating her and will search for her police remand.”
Honeypreet complained of chest pain in the nighttime and was taken to a hospital here where she was found to be well by doctors. A woman collaborator, Sukhdeep Kaur, who was accompanying Honeypreet when she was detained on Tuesday, was also under arrest on charges of harbouring the escapee.
A.S. Chawla, Panchkula Police Commissioner, who confirmed her detain, supposed that investigation would be done on where all Honeypreet continues in the past few days and who all assist in harbouring her. Refuting rumours that Honeypreet had given in and was not under arrest, Chawla supposed: “It was not a surrender. It was a detain.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Honeypreet, in a dialogue to a news channel, asserts that she was not guilty. Describing the allegations adjacent to her as “baseless”, she alleged that she was wrongly concerned in the sedition case.
Previously, the Delhi High Court on September 26 release her anticipatory bail plea. “The plea is without value. Honeypreet has been evading hold in Haryana,” Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal had ruled on the appeal of Honeypreet, who seised a threat to her life in Haryana.
A court in Panchkula had in September issued arrest warrants adjacent to top Dera functionaries, i.e. Honeypreet, Aditya Insan along with Pawan Insan. The Haryana Police booked all three on charges of agitation, provocative violence and being concerned in a conspiracy to assist the Dera chief escape following his conviction by a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on 25th August on two counts of rape of female sadhvis in 1999. The Haryana Police had declared an international alert adjacent to all three.
Honeypreet, in her mid-30s, has been the nearby assistant of Ram Rahim since 2009. Her ex-husband Vishwas Gupta had supposed illicit relations amid the two. The woman who has been declaring to be Ram Rahim’s “adopted daughter”, also starred as the lead heroine in five movies he directed, produced as well as acted for more than three years.
Ram Rahim has been sentenced to 20 years of rigorous custody and a fine of more than Rs 30 lakh. His rape conviction led to aggression in Panchkula and Sirsa in Haryana, leaving 38 people dead plus a further 264 injured. Isolated occurrence of violence was also reported from Delhi and numerous places in Punjab.
