Armed with an arrest warrant, a team of Panchkula Police on Tuesday raided a house in the national capital intensifying the search operation for Honeypreet Singh, the ‘daughter’ of rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim. However, she managed to evade arrest.
The raid was conducted at house number A-9 in south Delhi’s posh Greater Kailash locality even as Honeypreet has applied for a transit anticipatory bail plea in Delhi High Court.
According to reports, the raid began at 6am and the police were also looking for Aditya Insan, the public relations officer of Dera Sacha Sauda.
Facing sedition charges, Honeypreet, who has been on the run following Ram Rahim’s conviction in two rape cases on Monday approached the court seeking transit anticipatory bail.
Earlier, a lookout notice was issued against Honeypreet by the police.
Ram Rahim was convicted by the special CBI court in Panchkula on August 25, following which violence and arson had erupted in Panchkula and Sirsa districts of Haryana which had left 41 people dead and several others injured.
The CBI court on August 28 had sentenced Ram Rahim to 20 years in prison for raping two of his disciples in 2002.
