A court on Wednesday granted bail to Honeypreet Insan, adopted daughter of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, in 2017 Panchkula violence case.
It may be recalled that the violence in Panchkula, that left more than 30 dead and several injured, had erupted on August 28, 2017, following the conviction of the Dera chief in rape cases.
According to a chargesheet filed by the police, Honeypreet and the 45-member Dera management committee made a plan to unleash violence if Gurmeet Ram Rahim was convicted in the rape case.
Forty-one people were arrested by the police and 5, including Aditya Insan, were declared proclaimed offenders by a court last year.
On November 2, the court had dropped sedition charges against Honeypreet and 35 other accused in the Panchkula violence case. However, charges were framed against Honeypreet and other Dera followers by Additional District and Sessions Judge Sanjay Sandhir under relevant sections of the IPC in connection with this case.
