It’s been many days since a lookout notice was issued against Ram Rahim’s close confidante Honeypreet, but still there is no clue of her whereabouts. Now, to ensure her arrest, posters of jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s adopted daughter Honeypreet Insan have been pasted at police stations bordering Nepal and the law and order machinery is on alert to ensure she does not sneak into the neighbouring country. The police stations of Kapilvastu, Mohana, Shohratgarh and Debarua, whose areas border Nepal, have been alerted, Superintendent of Police (SP), Siddharth Nagar, Satyendra Kumar said. Honeypreet’s photographs have been pasted at these police stations. The intelligence mechanism has also been put into service to keep an eye on the activities of those crossing the Indian territory, he said. The Haryana police had on September 1 issued a lookout notice against Honeypreet.
The Uttar Pradesh police is also on an alert in Maharajganj, Lakhimpur and Bahraich districts which border Nepal, another official said. UP shares a 599.3 km long open border with Nepal touching seven districts – Pilibhit, Lakhimpur Kheri, Bahraich, Sravasti, Balrampur, Sidhharthnagar and Maharajganj. Haryana police officials had recently come to Lakhimpur Kheri looking for the whereabouts of Honeypreet, one of the closest aides of the Dera Sacha Sauda chief.
Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Ghanshyam Chaurasiya, confirmed the arrival of two Haryana police personnel at Gaurifanta border in Kheri. The Haryana police had shared some information with the Gaurifanta police and made inquiries about her suspected movement towards the neighbouring country through the porous India-Nepal border, the official said. “However, when no clue about Honeypreet’s departure for Nepal could be gathered, the Haryana police personnel returned,” the ASP said. He said that an unclaimed vehicle bearing the registration number of Punjab was seized from the border and a probe was on to ascertain its ownership.
Honeypreet is the adopted daughter of Ram Rahim Singh whose conviction in a rape case triggered mob violence that killed around 40 people across Haryana. She had accompanied the Dera head when he was brought to the special CBI court in Panchkula for the pronouncement of the verdict in the 15-year-old rape case. She also travelled along with him in a special chopper which ferried them to Rohtak from Panchkula after the conviction.
