New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday reserved its order on the anticipatory bail plea of Honeypreet Insan, who is wanted by the Haryana Police in connection with incidents of violence following conviction of the Dera Sacha Sauda chief, saying the “easiest way out” for her would be to surrender.
Honeypreet has been on the run since the conviction of Gurmeet Singh in two rape cases. She is facing a case of sedition for allegedly inciting violence in Haryana after the Dera chief’s conviction.
Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet, the adopted daughter of the jailed Dera chief, tops the list of 43 persons “wanted” by the Haryana Police in connection with incidents of violence that had followed Ram Rahim’s conviction in the rape cases.
Gurmeet Singh was convicted by the special CBI court in Panchkula on August 25, following which violence and arson had erupted in Panchkula and Sirsa districts of Haryana which had left 41 people dead and several others injured.
The CBI court on August 28 had sentenced Gurmeet Singh to 20 years in prison for raping two of his disciples in 2002.
