The Asian Age - - Nation - AGE COR­RE­SPON­DENT

The Ut­tar Pradesh po­lice have launched a man­hunt along the UP-Nepal bor­der for Honeypreet In­san, the adopted daugh­ter of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. The move comes after in­tel­li­gence in­puts that Honeypreet may try to cross over to Nepal.

ASP Ma­hara­j­ganj Ashutosh Shukla said that they have cir­cu­lated pho­to­graphs of Honeypreet to all bor­der­ing po­lice sta­tions and have also posted two women con­sta­bles in each po­lice sta­tion.

Spe­cial in­struc­tions have been given to the women con­sta­bles to check ev­ery wo­man and girl, par­tic­u­larly those wear­ing burqa or some kind of veil, he added.

“We are not al­low­ing any women or girl to cross over with­out frisk­ing and doc­u­ment ver­i­fi­ca­tion by jawans. Night pa­trolling on open bor­der has been in­ten­si­fied and we are keep­ing round the clock vigil on those peo­ple cross­ing the bor­der”, the po­lice of­fi­cial said.

Su­nauli, lo­cated about 90km form Go­rakh­pur, is the most fa­vored town bor­der­ing Nepal and is one of the ma­jor tran­sit points of hu­man traf­fick­ing and smug­gling from both sides of the bor­der. More se­cu­rity per­son­nel have been de­ployed there to en­sure Ms Honeypreet does not reach a safe haven in Nepal.
