It’s big development! Just a few hours after Honeypreet’s TV interviews went viral, the Dera Sacha Sauda chief’s confidante has been arrested by police. Currently, Honeypreet is in Haryana police’s custody. One more woman has been arrested with Honeypreet. Reportedly, Honeypreet was arrested around 3 PM. Panchkula Police Commissioner has confirmed that Honeypreet has been arrested. She will be produced in court tomorrow.

The big development comes within hours of Honeypreet’s interviews went viral on the internet.

During the interview given to News24 inside a car, Honeypreet can be seen crying endlessly over allegations against her. She kept repeating that Papa (Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh), jailed for 20 years for raping sadhvis, is innocent. “I went into depression after know how media levelled allegations against me and my relations with Papa.” “I was deeply hurt to see how media ripped our father-daughter relations,” Honeypreet told News24 as she kept crying. Moreover, she told the news channel that Papa (Ram Rahim) always taught her and everyone to die in the service of the nation but sadly sedition charge was slapped on him.

Haryana Police on September 1 had issued a lookout notice for her, fearing that she could leave the country. Sirsa-headquartered Dera spokesperson Vipassana Insan had earlier said Honeypreet should help in the investigations. She had also claimed the Dera had no contact with her.

Honeypreet, said to be in her mid 30s, is considered among Ram Rahim’s possible successors as the head of the sect. Honeypreet had accompanied Ram Rahim when he was brought to the special court for the pronouncement of the verdict in the 15-year-old rape cases. She also travelled with him in a chopper which ferried them to Rohtak from Panchkula after the conviction. Honeypreet acted in the film ‘MSG 2 – The Messenger’ and had a cameo role in ‘MSG – The Warrior Lion Heart’, in which the Dera chief played the lead roles.
