The woman, who is in her mid-30s and is often referred to as “papa’s favourite angel” was wanted in rioting cases related to Panchkula violence among others.

Honeypreet, along with another woman, was arrested from Zirakpur-Patiala road in Punjab, says Panchkula Police commissioner Chawla. Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja, tops the list of 43 most wanted people released by Haryana Police, in connection with Panchkula’s Dera violence incident that left at least 41 people dead and over 250 injured, following Ram Rahim’s rape conviction.

Honeypreet will now be produced in court tomorrow, confirms Panchkula Police Commissioner, AS Chawla. Honeypreet, along with another woman, was arrested from Zirakpur-Patiala road in Punjab, says Panchkula said Chawla .
Honeypreet tops the list of 43 most wanted people released by Haryana Police, in connection with Panchkula’s Dera violence incident that left at least 41 people dead and over 250 injured, following Ram Rahim’s rape conviction. Earlier today, Honeypreet hinted at surrendering before the court in a video interview.
In a TV interview Shae said “For me, when Papa went away (was jailed), my world came crashing down. I was devastated mentally. Then the way some guided me, I went to Delhi…Now, I will go to the Punjab and Haryana High Court,” Honeypreet said. She claimed to be “devastated” and “depressed” by allegations of inciting Panchkula violence.
“Was I present with the arsonists (during the mayhem in Panchkula on August 25), how are they levelling such allegations,” she said while sitting inside a car at an undisclosed location. “Papa” is innocent, she further added.
Rejecting several allegations levelled by her former husband Vishwas Gupta on her “relationship” with Ram Rahim, she said, “I cannot understand how anyone can point fingers at pious relations that are there between a father and his daughter. What proof have these people got to level such allegations? All those who are spreading such rumours, please do not believe them.”

From August 27 till date, here are all the places which she had gone to before finally being apprehended:

  • Honeypreet visited her brother’s in-laws in Hanumangarh and stayed there for August 27 and August 28.
  • She left Hanumangarh just before police reached there looking for her on August 29.
  • On August 30, she stayed at a Dera follower’s house in Rajasthan’s Sangaria.
  • She was spotted at a shopping mall in Udaipur on September 2. By the time police reached the spot, they could only find a Dera caretaker.
  • News of Honeypreet being spotted in Nepal started doing the rounds and a search was launched.
  • Unable to find Honeypreet in Nepal, police tracked her to Ram Rahim’s native village Gurusar Modia. Yet again, Honeypreet gave police the slip.
  • Honeypreet met her lawyer in Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar on September 25. She stayed there for two hours but police reached the spot two days later after scanning the CCTV footage of the area.
  • Police searched a flat and some other locations in Gurgaon but Honeypreet managed to stay a step ahead of them.
  • On October 3, Honeypreet revealed to India Today where all she went in the last month.
