Minister of State (MoS) for Home Hansraj Ahir on Tuesday said that “criminal” Honeypreet Insan, the adopted daughter of imprisoned Dera Sacha Sauda leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, should be arrested by the police.
When asked about Honeypreet’s anticipatory bail application, Ahir, in a veiled attack, said that a criminal is a criminal, he will make efforts to escape the law and no criminal should be spared.
“It is the job of the police and security agencies to bring down the criminals. No criminal should be spared. The police are doing their job well… We will arrest all the culprits in this case,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court will hear HoneyPreet’s early plea at 2 pm today.
Honeypreet Insan was furious after the conviction of Ram Rahim Singh in two rape cases.
Earlier, Honeypreet’s lawyer Pradeep Arya said that she visited his office today to sign the anticipatory bail application.
Arya told ANI that Honeypreet was in constant touch with him and that he will move the Delhi High Court tomorrow seeking bail for his client.
“It took time for her to decide, I guess. As soon as she contacted us, we took the necessary steps. Honeypreet came today afternoon to my office in Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar to sign the bail papers,” he said.
When asked about Honeypreet’s whereabouts, Arya said that he had no idea about it.
He said Honeypreet is very upset with the Dera chief’s conviction and the “irresponsible” presentation of her relationship with Ram Rahim.
“We are requesting an urgent hearing. Mainly, she has been accused of treason. The charges against her are wrong,” said Arya.
According to Honeypreet’s lawyer, the case has been filed against her under Sections 151, 152, 153, 120B, 121A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
On September 18, the Haryana Police issued a “wanted list” of 43 people, for the violence unleashed after the conviction of Ram Rahim in connection with two rape cases. The list had Honeypreet Insan’s name at the top.
Dera Sacha Sauda followers indulged in several acts of violence after a CBI court ordered the conviction of Ram Rahim in connection with the two rape cases on August 25. The violence resulted in the death of 41 people and injuries to more of 250 others.
