Gurmeet Ram Rahim's 'certainly questionable' relationship with adopted daughter Honeypreet
Apart from two daughters Amanpreet and Charanpreet, Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim also has a son named Jasmeet Insan with his wife Harjeet Kaur.

However, the Dera chief adopted a woman now called Honeypreet Insan in 2009. According to a report carried by Hindustan Times, Honeypreet Insan who is considered closest to Gurmeet, is his "likely successor". If sources are to be believed, people at the Dera consider her words as the Dera chief's words. Honeypreet Insan calls the Dera chief 'pa' or father.

Honeypreet had accompanied Gurmeet Ram Rahim to the special CBI court in Panchkula on Friday and later, travelled alongside him to Rohtak in the 15-seater VVIP AgustaWestland helicopter.

However, as per a report of The Quint, a Dera Sacha Sauda devotee who did not wish to be named said that the "so-called father-daughter relationship" was "certainly questionable".

Born as Priyanka Taneja, Honeypreet hails from Fatehpur in Hissar and is said to be in her 30s. She was renamed as Honeypreet in 1999 after her marriage to Dera Sacha Sauda follower and Panchkula resident Vishwas Gupta.

Honeypreet came in contact with Dera Sacha Sauda when she approached the religious cult to complain against her husband's family for torturing her and demanding dowry.

It was then in 2009 that the Dera chief adopted Honeypreet as his daughter and Vishwas Gupta as his son-in-law. Soon, Honeypreet became a staunch follower of Gurmeet and started rising in stature at the Dera.

However, although Dera chief's adopting his wife as his daughter changed Gupta's fortunes financially, he and his wife started drifting apart. In 2011, Gupta approached the High Court seeking judicial custody of his wife Honeypreet from the Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim. He also alleged that the Dera chief had been sexually exploiting his wife.

According to an article published by Hindustan Times in 2011, Gupta, the petitioner in the case alleged that the Dera head did not allow his wife to stay with him "even for a day and she has been kept by him all the time in the Dera by enticing her with intention to have illicit sexual intercourse with her" knowing well that she is a legally wedded wife.

"…petitioner's belief was shattered when one night petitioner was in Dera Sirsa and he happened to enter the room (guffa) of Dera head and saw the Dera head totally nude and having sex with petitioner's wife," alleged the petitioner, a resident of Panchkula.

However later, Gupta withdrew his complaint after an apparent out-of-court settlement. After a divorce through mutual consent, the couple parted ways and Honeypreet decided to stay with Gurmeet Ram Rahim at the Dera.

Since then, Honeypreet has been Gurmeet Ram Rahim's closest aide and can virtually be called his shadow. She has acted alongside the Rockstar Baba in many of his MSG series films and also directed the film Messenger of God (MSG) part II. Now with the Dera chief comfortably lodged in jail, where he is expected to remain for many-many years, speculations are rife that Honeypreet would succeed him as the new Dera chief.

And as for this father-daughter relationship, what happened behind closed curtains, shall always remain a mystery.
