New Delhi [India], September 26 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's 'adopted' daughter Honeypreet's transit anticipatory bail application.
Court in its order observed that the applicant is just wasting its time and that it was merely a camouflage that she applied for bail in the Delhi High Court.
Meanwhile, the prosecution lawyer stated that, "She (Honeypreet) has filed an application before the Delhi High Court, whereas she should have done that in Punjab and Haryana High. The Delhi High Court stated the jurisdiction of Delhi does not lie here, and she does not deserve the bail since she is evading arrest".
"As far as surrender is concerned, it is left to her," the lawyer added.
The court had asked the counsel for Honeypreet to show any document that a property in Delhi belonged to her or anyone connected to her.
Honeypreet mentioned that she is a single woman with clean antecedents and is law abiding. She has also said that she is willing to join investigation.
Honeypreet has been on the run following the conviction of Dera chief by a special CBI court in Panchkula on August 25 in two rape cases. (ANI)
