Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet, topped the list of 43 people “wanted” by the Haryana Police in connection with the incidents of violence on August 25 in Panchkula. The violence left 41 people dead and several injured following Ram Rahim’s conviction in two rape cases.
She has been charged with sedition and trying to help the Dera Sacha Sauda chief, escape after being sent to jail for rape. Honeypreet, from an undisclosed location on Monday told a TV channel that she was seeking legal opinion on her next step and was likely to move the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
“We call (Ram Rahim) papa coach. Crores of women and girls have been empowered by Papaji,” she said, rubbishing rape charges against Ram Rahim.
She said, “In real life, Honeypreet is not like the way she has been presented. I am living in fear.”
She further said that, “Everything in the recent past has affected my mental state and I have been branded as traitor.”
After Ram Rahim’s conviction, she also accompanied him in a chopper to Rohtak jail. Thereafter, “Papa’s angel” allegedly went missing. After she was booked at Sector 5 police station in Panchkula along with Dera functionaries Aditya Insan and Surinder Dhiman for allegedly inciting violence in Panchkula in the aftermath of the Dera head’s conviction, the Haryana Police issued a lookout notice and an arrest warrant against Honeypreet.
Searches at various locations, including the India-Nepal border were conducted by the Haryana police to trace Honeypreet and two other key Dera functionaries - Aditya Insan and Pawan Insan. The Delhi High Court, on September 26, dismissed the transit anticipatory bail petition of Honeypreet Insan. The court’s order was based on the grounds that she had been evading arrest and hence was not entitled to any discretionary relief.
