Rohtak, Jan 4: Honeypreet Insan’s mother Asha Taneja has sent a Rs 5 crore defamation notice to Rakhi Sawant through advocate Momin Malik while asking her to apologise for defaming her daughter within 30 days.

Asha claimed that Rakhi Sawant defamed Honeypreet Insan by levelling serious allegations on her of having links with Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan. (ALSO READ – I am Broke, Don’t Have Money to Pay Lawyer’s Fee: Honeypreet Writes to Jail Authorities)

Earlier in an interview, Rakhi Sawant had claimed that she was close to Gurmeet Ram Rahim and this did not go down well with his ‘adopted daughter’. “I realised that Honeypreet was uncomfortable seeing my close proximity with Gurmeet and even feared that I may become her ‘sautan’ (lover’s wife) by marrying him,” Rakhi had said.

Currently, Rakhi Sawant is making a film on self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim. She has promised to expose the self-styled godman through the movie titled ‘Ab Hoga Insaaf’. “I promise my audiences that main baba ki sab pol khol ke hi dum lungi (I will breathe only after exposing the baba),” she had said.

Gurmeet was sentenced to 20 years in jail for raping two women and is currently lodged in Rohtak jail. In November, Honeypreet and 11 others were charged with sedition in connection with the violence in Panchkula and Sirsa after the Dera chief was convicted of rape. They have also been charged with criminal conspiracy besides other offences under the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
