Coming out of hiding, the absconding daughter of jailed Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Honeypreet Insan vehemently denied having incited ‘Panchkula’ violence. Despite the conviction, she maintained that her “Papa” was innocent and that his conviction on August 25 in two rape cases has only left her “depressed”.
It need be known that Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet, who tops the list of 43 people ‘wanted’ by the Haryana Police in connection with the incidents of violence that left at least 41 people dead and several injured following Ram Rahim’s conviction, said she was seeking legal opinion on her next step and was likely to move the Punjab and Haryana High Court here. Honeypreet, against whom a lookout notice and later an arrest warrant was issued by the Haryana Police, told a TV channel that allegations levelled against her are not true.
On being asked about her image being portrayed as a “villain”, a “conspirator”, Honeypreet replied, “How are they making me an accused. I was there with my Papa (Ram Rahim) and discharging my duty as a daughter (on August 25).”
