New Delhi: Honeypreet Insan’s transit anticipatory bail plea was dismissed by the Delhi High Court on Tuesday.
Honeypreet, who claims to be the adopted daughter of the jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim, is facing charges of sedition and inciting violence after the conviction of Ram Rahim in twin rape cases.
The court’s order was based on the grounds that she has been eluding arrest and hence was not entitled to any discretionary relief.
Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, while passing the order, said that the bail plea was filed in Delhi to buy time and delay the proceedings going on in a Panchlula court in Haryana.
Justice Sehgal had questioned Honeypreet for filing an anticipatory bail before it even though she was a permanent resident of Haryana and told her “the easiest way out is that you surrender”.
Transit anticipatory bail application is meant to seek protection against arrest during her transit from Delhi to Haryana for joining probe in the sedition case.
