AMN / Panchkula
A local court here granted bail to Honeypreet ‘Insan’—the adopted daughter of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim —on Wednesday in a case connected to the violence witnessed in Panchkula in August 2017.
She was released from Ambala cental jail in the evening. Honeypreet walked out of the jail at 5.45 pm.
Earlier in the day, Honeypreet submitted a bail application in court — four days after sedition charges were dropped against her and 39 others.
Honeypreet and others were charged with conspiracy for having allegedly planned the violence at a meeting at the Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters in Sirsa in the event of Ram Rahim’s conviction in a rape case.
Honeypreet has been in judicial custody in Ambala jail since she was arrested in October 2017.
Ram Rahim’s guilty verdict in a rape case in August 2017 sparked off violence that killed more than 30 people—most of them the so-called godman’s own followers.
