Chandigarh: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Haryana Police, that is interrogating the controversial daughter of the jailed Dera chief, Honeypreet Insan, revealed that she has confessed her role in the Panchkula violence that took place on August 25.
One of the officials reportedly told reporters that Honeypreet has admitted preparing the guide maps of Panchkula, where the violence was perpetrated.
“She has revealed that Dera functionaries were given the responsibility to organise and fund the violence,” an official said.
Beside a deployment plan, police believe that Honeypreet’s laptop may also contain information about financial transactions of the Dera as she was the one who took care of Dera’s finances. The police also believe that she could also be aware of the unaccounted cash that was taken to an undisclosed location after the conviction of Ram Rahim.
The Haryana police told the court that all the related information are saved in laptop and they will be recovering it soon.
A blueprint of the August 25 violence was prepared in a meeting that was held on August 17, days before Dera chief Ram Rahim was convicted by the CBI court in a 2002 rape case.
Meanwhile, a Panchkula court on Tuesday extended her police custody for three more days.
Violence had broken out in Panchkula after the conviction of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in rape case by Special CBI Court on August 25.
The arson and violence left 38 people dead and scores of people injured in Panchkula.
