Honeypreet Insaan, the 'adopted' daughter of Dera Sachha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, has been living the life of a fugitive since the day Gurmeet was sent to Rohtak jail to serve 20 years' sentence in prison for raping two of his female followers. She was last seen accompanying the fake godman in a chopper to Rohtak, and after Gurmeet was taken into judicial custody, she suddenly vanished.
Honeypreet's name is at the top of the list of Dera followers, who have been accused of sedition and inciting people to resort to violence in Panchkula and other places.
Despite a nationwide search for Honeypreet that extended to neighbouring country Nepal, police failed to catch her, and on Monday, her lawyers suddenly filed an anticipatory bail petition before the Delhi High Court. The high court judge on Tuesday rejected the petition citing jurisdictional reasons, and asked Honeypreet to approach the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
The lady judge also remarked that it would be advisable for Honeypreet to surrender before the police. Honeypreet should have filed her anticipatory bail petition before the Punjab and Haryana High Court in the first place, but she was afraid of being arrested en route.
Now there is no way out for her. There is little chance for her to get relief from the Punjab and Haryana High Court too. It would be better if she surrenders before the police, cooperate in the investigations, and answer all questions.
