Unaware of the fact that Honeypreet is a prime accused in the violence that erupted post his conviction in the 15-year-old rape case, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who is currently lodged in the high-security Sunaria jail, has said that he wants to talk to her adopted daughter.

According to reports, Gurmeet Singh has given two phone numbers to the jail officials wishing to speak with them.

Officials say that one of the numbers given to them is that of Honeypreet while the other number is the one he used before leaving Dera headquarter for the verdict.

On Tuesday, Haryana prison DGP K P Singh had said, "We have given both numbers to the police for verification. Secondly, Honeypreet is an accused facing serious charges, hence it may not be possible to connect her with the dera head until she comes out clean."

On the other hand, a report in Times of India has said that rape convict Gurmeet has started working as a gardener in the jail premises.

The report quoted Haryana Prison DGP saying that the Dera chief will be working in the gardens growing vegetables in a small plot of land near his barracks.

Dismissing the allegations of providing Gurmeet VIP treatment, Singh said that he was living like any other prisoner and has already started working.

Whatever he produces will be used in the jail mess, Singh said.

The report quoted the DGP saying, "He falls under the category of unskilled labour. Hence he will get a wage of Rs 20 per day. He sleeps like other convicts of his category. He may use coupons to buy eatables from the jail canteen. We have put a cap of Rs 5,000 on monthly spending of the convicts of his category."
