Honeypreet, originally Priyanka Taneja, was arrested after being hunted for over a month by the Haryana police, which sent its teams to Rajasthan and Bihar and even the border with Nepal. She was questioned for four-and-a-half hours on her role in the violence by Dera supporters on August 25 after Ram Rahim was declared guilty of raping two followers. In an interview given to a TV channel, she had claimed that she is completely innocent and her association with Gurmeet Singh was in no way illicit in nature.
