New Delhi:

Haryana Police on Wednesday produced Honeypreet Insan, “adopted daughter” of jailed Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Gurmeet Singh in the Panchkula Court amid tight security.

After remaining fugitive for 38 days, Honeypreet was arrested by Punjab police on Tuesday from the Zikarpur- Patiala highway.

She was charged with sedition by Haryana government for allegedly inciting rioting after a Panchkula CBI court held Dera chief Gurmeet Singh guilty in a rape case.

After her arrest, Haryana police interrogated her for around three hours and police sources said she didn’t answer directly to some of the questions.

“She was evasive in her replies about her whereabouts and her role in inciting violence and providing funding to those behind the violence. We are interrogating her and will seek her police remand,” a police officer involved in the questioning told IANS.

Haryana Police has also detained a woman, who helped Honeypreet evade arrest since her name first erupted as an accused of inciting violence in Panchkula and adjoining areas on August 25, the day when CBI court convicted the Dera chief for raping two of his convicts.
