Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's closest aide Honeypreet Insan has been arrested after weeks of a cat-and-mouse game that the Haryana police seemed to be losing until today. The 36-year-old was seen speaking to the media and appeared on various TV channels before she was arrested on the highway near Chandigarh.
Born Priyanka Taneja, Honeypreet gained prominence when she was seen with the 50-year-old Ram Rahim after he was held guilty of raping two followers. She stayed with him when he was flown to a jail in Rohtak in a special government chopper.
In her online profiles, she calls herself a "philanthropist, director, editor and actress".
She says in her profiles -- "Passionate to transform my Rockstar Papa's directions into actions!"
She has over one million followers on Twitter and more than five lakh on Facebook.
On his 50th birthday on August 15, she tweeted: "#HappyBirthDayGuruPa Congrats for d phenomenal 50 yrs! Thanx for turning every darkest hour into a brightest moment."
Honeypreet has acted in and directed films starring Ram Rahim, mainly the "MSG - messenger of God" series. She claimed to have broken action star Jackie Stan's record by performing more than 21 roles in a film.
Her website -- www.HoneypreetInsan.me -- introduces her as "a great Daughter of an amazing Father" and refers to her philanthropic and welfare work "just like her Dad".
She was last spotted in a burqa on security footage from a Delhi locality; she had gone to meet her lawyer for her court petition for protection from arrest.
