Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar accused the Punjab Police of not sharing information with its Haryana counterpart ahead of the arrest of Honeypreet Insan who claims to be the adopted daughter of the jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief. He was responding to questions about Honeypreet appearing before some media channels hours ahead of her arrest where he said "The Punjab Police should have informed the Haryana Police about Honeypreet's whereabouts earlier. Something smells fishy. This (delay in her arrest) has happened due to the Punjab Police. How much the Punjab police helped (her) and how much was in their knowledge...If it was in their knowledge they should have passed information to the Haryana Police and handed her over to them.”
Meanwhile Chief Minister of Punjab, Aamrinder Singh lambasted Khattar for raising questions about the role of the Punjab Police and also to refrain from such alleged fabrications to ‘shield his own government's failure’. He alleged that after trying "unsuccessfully to pin the blame for the Panchkula violence on the Punjab government", Khattar was once again trying to divert public attention from the collapse of the law and order in Haryana since the rape conviction of Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
