Panchkula (Haryana) [India], October 23 (ANI): A Panchkula district court on Monday extended the judicial custody of the adopted daughter of Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Honeypreet Insan, and her accomplice Sukhdeep Kaur till November 6.

They were charged with sedition by the Haryana Government for allegedly inciting violence after a Panchkula Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court held Dera chief Gurmeet Singh guilty in a rape case.

Priyanka Taneja (36), alias Honeypreet Insan, and Sukhdeep Kaur were arrested from the Zirakpur-Patiala road in Punjab on October 3.

Earlier on October 4, the court had sent Honeypreet to a six-day remand, after the police had sought a 14-day remand to interrogate her and establish a connection between Honeypreet and the violence in Panchkula following Ram Rahim's rape conviction.

After their police remand ended, the duo were sent to judicial custody till October 23. The police informed the court that a mobile had been recovered from her.

During the investigation, the Haryana Police claimed that Honeypreet was not cooperating in the interrogation. (ANI)
