Honeypreet’s letter claims, she fled the country

Honeypreet’s letter claims, she fled the country

New Delhi: A letter circulated on social media claims that Honeypreet had fled the country after Ram Rahim was convicted in the rape case of two sadhvis. It further says that she escaped with some constable Vikas of Fatehabad.

The letter has the date of August 25. The special CBI court of Panchkula had pronounced Ram Rahim guilty of raping two sadhvis at his Dera. Ram Rahim was taken to Rohtak jail the same evening while Panchkula and some other places witnessed wide-scale violence by Dera followers resulting in the death of 38 people.

His adopted daughter was seen accompanying with Ram Rahim till the guest house where he was initially lodged in Rohtak.

When police shifted Ram Rahim to Sunaria jail and did not allow Honeypreet to accompany him inside the prison, the adopted daughter of the Sirsa-based godman fled the scene. She has since remained untraceable.

The letter which surfaced the social media is yet to be ascertained that it was actually written by Honeypreet. Police sources have described the letter as “fake”. Curiously, the author of the letter mentions the name and address of the person with whom Honeypreet escaped. Why would she give details of her escape plan in a letter?

After the Ram Rahim’s escape plot was discovered, Honeypreet was booked under IPC section pertaining to sedition. Police have issued a lookout notice against her. Haryana police suspect that she may try to flee the country and seek refuge abroad.

The letter, if authentic, may be another indication that she had an escape plan ready much before the conviction of Ram Rahim by the CBI court. The letter says, “I, Honeypreet Insan, D/o of Saint Dr Gurmeet Ram Rahim Insan is leaving, unharmed, with constable Vikas, number 3/783 of Fatehabad.”
