New Delhi: The woman, who accompanied Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim in the army helicopter after he was convicted of rape charges against him, had left many wondering who she is.
However, her identity became public a couple of hours later and she was identified as the third daughter of Ram Rahim named Honeypreet Insan. But, more was yet to be known about Honeypreet.
Honeypreet had accompanied Gurmeet Ram Rahim to the special CBI court in Panchkula on Friday and later, travelled alongside him to Rohtak in the 15-seater VVIP Augusta Westland helicopter.
But, before heading to Rohtak in the helicopter, both Ram Rahim and Honeypreet had sought permission from the Panchkula CBI court to stay together in jail. The CBI court however denied the permission saying that it was not for the court to decide if rape convict Ram Rahim could have a companion in the jail or not. The court told them that only the government or jail administration could take the decision in this regard.
Honeypreet is the third daughter of Gurmeet Ram Rahim. But, she is not his biological daughter. Ram Rahim adopted her in 2009. Her original name is Priyanka Taneja.
Honeypreet was married to Vishwas Gupta, who filed a divorce petition in court in 2011. Vishwas Gupta hails from Panchkula while Honeypreet belongs to Fatehabad district. Reports suggest that Vishwas Gupta, in his divorce petition, alleged that Ram Rahim had an illicit relationship with Honeypreet. Vishwas Gupta and Honeypreet are divorced now.
On her social media profiles, Honeypreet announces herself as Papa’s Pari (Dad’s Angel). Her Facebook page has over five lakh likes. At Dera headquarters in Sirsa, the word of Honeypreet has the authority of Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
