Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim and his aide Honeypreet have a connection with Kerala's Wayanad. While Ram Rahim and his close aide Honeypreet languish in jail, the Enforcement Directorate is probing latter's diary to find illegal properties owned by the Dera across India.
The secret diary of Ram Rahim's 'adopted' daughter mentions words like 'Wayanad Kerala land', 'Himachal ki land new', 'Darjeeling land', 'money transfer resort today', 'teams for V 7 in 12', '25 de do Garg ko', 'Sanju land Gurgaon'.
Decoding these phrases has led ED to illegal assets worth Rs 20 crore so far. The ED in its probe found that 30-acre plot in Rajasthan, 105-acre plot in Haryana, 15-acre plot in Uttar Pradesh and a 19-acre plot in Uttarakhand were acquired by Dera Sacha Sauda in the recent past.
Going by the pattern, it is possible that Dera chief had purchased property in Wayanad, which has been in the news since Congress chief Rahul Gandhi chose it as his second battleground in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections 2019.
Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja, has been serving a jail term in Ambala after being charged with planning and inciting the violence in Panchkula and other neighbouring states in August 2017 following Ram Rahim's conviction in a couple of rape cases.
