While the name of Gurmeet’s adopted daughter Honeypreet Insan has already created buzz, another name that has emerged as a probable candidate to head the Dera if Ram Rahim decides against remaining the chief. The name of this person is Jasmeet. He is Ram Rahim’s only son. He may emerge the favourite among old sadhus living in the Dera for years, according to a report in The Indian Express.

Jasmeet, 35, is married to the daughter of former MLA and Congress leader Harminder Singh Jassi.
