Honeypreet Insan is reportedly not cooperating with the investigation with her several misleading statements. However, the investigating officers have found evidence to establish the fact that it was the adopted daughter of the Dera Sacha Sauda chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who masterminded the violence in Panchkula.
The Panchkula police have Honeypreet in a six-day remand and according to the probe officers, it was Honeypreet who handled the cash at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa. Additionally, it has also been learned been learned that even the family members of the rapist Dera chief were at her mercy as she was the one who gave them cash.
According to reports from Hindustan Times, it has been alleged that Honeypreet distributed cash of Rs. 1.25 crore to some of the Dera men to execute her plan of violence in Panchkula if the CBI court gave a verdict against Ram Rahim Singh. In a press conference, AS Chawla, the police commissioner also stated, “We have evidence, including recovery of Rs 24 lakh from one of the Dera followers that clearly indicated that money used to incite violence was routed through her.”
Notably, the Dera chief’s private secretary, Rakesh Kumar has also testified, confirming the role of Honeypreet Insaan in the Panchkula violence. Moreover, the police commissioner also stated that they had planned an escape for the Dera chief assuming that he would be taken to the Ambala jail. However, since he was taken to the Rohtak jail directly, their escape plan was foiled.
It must be mentioned here that Chawla further stated in the press conference that Honeypreet is being taken to different places to confirm what she said in her interrogations, however, she has been misleading and showing resistance.
With Honeypreet, who was amongst the top most wanted criminals in Haryana, the focus is now on Aditya Insan, the Dera spokesperson. He has been on the run ever since his role in inciting the Dera followers came to light.
