By Vikas

With the Haryana government ordering a probe into how Honeypreet Insan, the adopted daughter of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, was allowed to board the chopper which took the Dera chief to Rohtak jail, the Haryana police on Sunday said that she was allowed with court's permission.

Haryana DGP BS Sandhu told the media that Honeypreet accompanied Ram Rahim as he was not well.

"After Ram Rahim Singh's conviction, she (Honeypreet Insan) expressed her desire to go with him as attendant stating he is unwell...She was in chopper with court's permission," ANI quoted Sandhu as saying.

Photographs taken in the court complex show that Honeypreet accompanied the Dera chief to court and also sat beside him in the chopper.

This issue came up during the hearing in the Punjab and Haryana high court as well. Some members of the high court bar told the court that special treatment was being extended to the dera head after his arrest. Bar members said not only was Honeypreet allowed to accompany him, Gurmeet was also kept in a guest house before being shifted to jail.
