While talking to a news channel, on Monday, Honeypreet downplayed all allegations framed against her claiming that she and her foster father, Gurmeet Singh were innocent.

"I urge people to not believe in these hoax reports. Nothing which is being assumed about me and my father is true," she said.

She also criticised reports of her inciting riots in Sirsa and in other parts of Haryana and Punjab.

 

"I was in the chopper with papa (Ram Rahim) when he was being taken to jail. We were not even aware of any unrest. My movement was being monitored, how could I have instigated riots?," she had said.
