They wanted a secret son, says former devotee
Former Dera Sacha Sauda followers and devotees claim that Honeypreet planned to have a son from Gurmeet Ram Rahim and wanted him to be declared as the heir.
The secrets of convicted Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim and Honeypreet continue to tumble out
of the closets every day. It has now emerged that Gurmeet Ram Rahim and Honeypreet had wanted a secret
child, preferably a son to lead Dera Sacha Sauda as the next chief of the sect.
But, their failed secret succession plan, as per claims by the former Dera followers, had a murky
history, which began with Honeypreet’s association with Gurmeet Ram Rahim years ago. The former Dera
followers claim to know much more than what has come out in public till date.
WAS HONEYPREET RAPED AT DERA?
The secret lustful relationship between Gurmeet Ram Rahim and Honeypreet has given rise to several
versions of their mutual equation at the Dera Sacha Sauda. Many former Dera followers believe that
before Honeypreet became a constant companion of Gurmeet Ram Rahim, she was raped inside his gufa, Dera
chief’s private chamber.
Former Dera followers claim that after Honeypreet met the same fate as the two sadhvis, who decided to
take on the might of the Sirsa godman in court, she responded by blackmailing Gurmeet Ram Rahim and got
favours in whatever she wanted.
Former drivers of Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Khatta Singh and his son Gurdas Singh (different from CBI witness
Gurdas Singh Toor), have alleged that they had seen Honeypreet entering the cave. When she came out of
the cave, she was in tears. Gurdas claimed that he and his cousin were guarding the cave on the
particular day when this happened.
“Honeypreet was upset and had straightway gone to meet her grandfather who worked as a cashier at the
Dera. He was annoyed and slammed the Dera chief. However, he was silenced by Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s
goons,” said Gurdas.
THE SECRET SUCCESSION PLAN
Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim and his companion Honeypreet had a secret succession plan for
the Sirsa-based sect. However, due to unexpected change in circumstances, their plans could not
According to the former Dera followers, Honeypreet and Gurmeet Ram Rahim had wanted a child, who they
planned to name as successor of the current sect chief, who has been sentenced to 20 years in jail. In
August this year, Gurmeet Ram Rahim was held guilty of raping two sadhvis at his Dera in 2002 .
A former Dera follower Gurdas Singh Toor, a CBI witness in the case against Ram Rahim, told India Today
that Honeypreet and the convicted self-styled godman had wanted a son born out of their relationship.
HONEYPREET TURNED GURMEET AGAINST JASMEET’
Toor claims that Gurmeet Ram Rahim and Honeypreet had been living like a couple inside the Dera. The
same claim was earlier made by Honeypreet’s former husband Vishwas Gupta. He had claimed that he had
seen Gurmeet Ram Rahim and Honeypreet having sex in the former’s private chambers while he was made to
wait outside. “Ram Rahim had never adopted Honeypreet as his daughter,” Gupta added.
According to Toor, it was Honeypreet who had come up with the idea that a son of hers by Gurmeet Ram
Rahim should be the next Dera Sacha Sauda chief. Honeypreet contested the claim of Jasmeet Singh,
Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s biological son and anointed heir to the gaddi of the Dera Sacha Sauda.
Though Ram Rahim had himself declared Jasmeet as the heir in 2007, he changed his mind under
“Gurmeet Ram Rahim was against his son Jasmeet Singh Insan and was not keen to make him the Dera chief.
As Honeypreet was the number-2 at the Dera, she wanted to give birth to a child from Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
Both had plans to make him the future Dera chief,” said Gurdas Singh Toor.
According to Gurdas Singh Toor, Honeypreet and Gurmeet Singh Ram Rahim wanted to use Vishwas Gupta’s
name as the child’s father for official purposes. But, the child was to be fathered by Gurmeet Ram
Rahim, Toor claimed.
However, the plan did not materialise as Vishwas Gupta divorced Honeypreet.
