Gurmeet Ram Rahim's adopted daughter Honeypreet Insan, who is in the custody of Harayana Police confessed on Wednesday that she incited the Panchkula violence that killed over 40 people, according to reports in the media.
Earlier on Tuesday, Honeypreet and her accomplice Sukhdeep Kaur were sent to a three-day police remand by a Panchkula court.
Honeypreet is accused of inciting violence after Ram Rahim was convicted on two counts of rape on August 25. She was arrested on October 3 on the Zirakpur-Patiala road in Punjab by the Haryana police.
Honeypreet tops a list of 43 people "wanted" by the state police in connection with the violence following Ram Rahim's conviction in a rape case.
At least 41 people died and several were injured in the violence. Honeypreet, who calls herself "Papa's angel", had accompanied Ram Rahim from the sect headquarters at Sirsa to special CBI court in Panchkula on August 25.
After Dera chief's conviction that day, she also accompanied him in a chopper when he was flown to Rohtak jail. There had been no trace of Honeypreet after August 25. On September 26, the Delhi High Court had dismissed Honeypreet's transit anticipatory bail plea. The court's order was based on the ground that she had been evading arrest and hence, was not entitled to any discretionary relief.
