After the court’s decision to send her to 6-day police remand, Panchkula police claimed that Honeypreet distributed Rs 1.25 crore to dera men to arrange logistics for inciting violence in Panchkula on the day of judgement in rape case against Gurmeet Singh.

Panchkula police said Honeypreet was the main custodian of cash generated at the dera headquarter in Sirsa. Police officers claimed that she was also the one who used to distribute money to chief’s family members.

“We have evidence, including recovery of Rs 24 lakh from one of the dera followers that clearly indicated that money used to incite violence was routed through her,” said police commissioner AS Chawla.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Panchkula court sent Honeypreet to six-day Police remand. After remaining fugitive for 38 days, Honeypreet was arrested by Punjab police on Tuesday from the Zikarpur-Patiala highway.

Honeypreet 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.
