Over the past few days, we heard enough of Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS), Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan and his innumerable supporters. In all the fuss, Singh’s adopted daughter Honeypreet Insan also came to limelight. It began with a picture of her accompanying her father in the helicopter to the Rohtak jail surfaced. People became curious to know about the woman who looked supposedly close to the self-proclaimed Godman.

Honeypreet is allegedly the closest to the convicted ‘Guru’ among the lot, say reports. As he is convicted for raping two women in 1999, there is a general contention that DSS will have her as the next chief.

Here are a few things you must know about the daughter of the con man:
