Singh up for hot chat

As a settlement, all the cases against Guptas magically disappeared.

The settlement however, also required that he agree to divorce by mutual consent.

"She was all-in-all," says the official, based on sustained interrogations of top dera functionaries now in custody, including Dhan Singh, legal head of the sect who was responsible for dealing with Gurmeet Singh's lawyers, and Rakesh Kumar Arora a.k.a. Police officers who interviewed dera functionaries in Sirsa, including the sect's incumbent chairperson Vipassana, say that Honeypreet was also responsible for driving a wedge between Gurmeet Singh and his son Jasmeet Insan in 2015.

By then all-powerful in the dera hierarchy, Honeypreet wanted a merger between Kings Biscuits (a factory Jasmeet started in Sirsa in 2011) and MSG Products, a food retail line launched that year.

No 'blushing bride', Honeypreet had married Gupta, a grandson of two-time Haryana (Gharounda) MLA Rulia Ram on the asking of the dera chief on February 14, 1999.Madaan says no one in the school had any idea that Priyanka had become Honeypreet."It was only after all the publicity following the dera chief's conviction that we made the connection," she says.When he eventually gathered the courage to petition the high court in Chandigarh, Gupta sought two things: protection from the dera's goons and the release of his wife from the "clutches" of Gurmeet Singh.Honeypreet and the dera followers deny the charges.
