Its been more than a month since self-proclaimed godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was convicted of rape. Ever since then, his “favourite angel” and allegedly-“adopted daughter” Honeypreet Insaan was missing. But now she has been finally found and it is shocking to know that she was tracked by some journalists from India Today.

Honeypreet was missing for the past 36 days after the police issued a lookout notice against her following the violence by Dera Sacha Sauda followers after Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s sentencing. Honeypreet got her name listed in one among the 43 most-wanted people by the Haryana Police. She was talking to India Today from an undisclosed location.

In a recent interview, she talked about the whole issue. She said, “The Honeypreet about whom the media is talking is not the real one. They have showed me as someone who is afraid of herself after the whole incident. I cannot describe my present mental state. I have been called a traitor, which is absolutely wrong. I was present at the court with permission. How else do you think can a woman be in the premises amid such security arrangement? The court permitted me to be with papa.”

She said, “You have seen the whole situation. How am I guilty? I just did what a daughter is meant to do. I have not spoken to anyone. How am I involved in riots? We went to the court believing that everything would be fine and we would be back in the evening. But the outcome was devastating and the verdict was against us. Our brain stopped working only. How can we conspire in such a situation?”

On being asked about her relationship with Guru Ram Rahim, she said, “I do not understand how can someone question the holy relationship between a father and daughter? My main concern was the way the media projected me. How can they malign a father and daughter’s relationship? Can a father not keep his hands on his daughter? Can a daughter not love her father?”

She tried to justify her father’s innocence saying, “On the basis of one letter, how can anyone be held guilty? My father is innocent and his innocence will be proved. No women were molested at the Dera. They have not considered the opinion of other women from Dera and the women who accused him did not come forward.”

Honeypreet shared that she managed to reach Delhi in the past 36 days and now she will go to the Punjab and Haryana High Court and take legal advice now.
Any message for the viewers?
She concluded saying, “Me and my father are innocent and the truth will come out soon. My relationship with my father is pure. Please don’t trust these baseless allegations.”
