Have to prove if Honeypreet masterminded Dera violence: Top cop
Honeypreet Insan, who has been arrested on charges of sedition and rioting, stayed in Rajasthan and Delhi during the time she was absconding, police said on Friday.
"She revealed during the interrogation that she stayed in Rajasthan and Delhi while she was at large," Panchkula Commissioner AS Chawla said.
He, however, added that the police have no information about Dera spokesperson Aditya Insan, who is still missing.
"Have no input on Dera spokesperson Aditya Insan crossing the borders of the country," ANI quoted Chawla as saying.
"We have to prove in the court whether Honeypreet had a role to play in violence following the sentencing of Dera chief," he added.
Earlier, the Panchkula top cop said that Honeypreet was not cooperating with the police in interrogation and is trying to mislead them.
Meanwhile, the Haryana Police is likely to conduct a narco test on her since she has remained evasive about her whereabouts, giving 'confusing' answers. She proved tough to interrogate when Haryana SIT placed some 40-odd questions before her.
Priyanka Taneja or Honeypreet as she is widely known, was among 43 people wanted in connection with the probe into the violence after Ram Rahim Singhs conviction that left 41 dead. Honeypreet said she was seeking legal opinion and is likely to move the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
Honeypreet said she was with Ram Rahim Singh on August 25 discharging her duties as a daughter.
"Every daughter supports her father...I went with him. Have you heard me uttering a word where I instigate people? I had gone there (to CBI court) with a hope that my father will return by the evening. But when he was held guilty, I went into depression. How could I think about anything else? I was devastated," she claimed.
Honeypreet had accompanied Ram Rahim Singh from the Dera headquarters at Sirsa to the special court in Panchkula on August 25. After the Dera chiefs conviction, she accompanied him in a chopper to Rohtak where he was lodged in a jail.
She said the authorities never raised objections when she accompanied Ram Rahim Singh in the chopper. "Later, so many things were said about how I accompanied him," she said.
After August 25, Honeypreet had remained untraceable. The woman, however, claimed she was not running away from the law and was only trying to come to terms with Ram Rahim Singhs conviction.
