Honeypreet Insan remanded to six-day police custody
New Delhi: The adopted daughter of jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Honeypreet Insan, was remanded to police custody for six days by a court in Panchkula today following her arrest by the Haryana Police a day earlier.
The prosecution had sought a 10-day police remand for Honeypreet, saying she was the closest aide of Gurmeet, who is serving 20 years of sentence on two counts of rape.
It also said that she knew many things about the activities of the sect and its role in the violence in Panchkula and other places after Gurmeet’s conviction on 25 August.
The police remand was opposed by Honeypreet’s counsel, and after the hearing, she was remanded to police custody for six days.
Panchkula was on high alert with tight security around the court to prevent a repeat of the violence that was witnessed following Gurmeet’s conviction in August.
