New Delhi: The Haryana police on Tuesday morning conducted searches in Delhi to trace jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief’s adopted daughter, Honeypreet Insan, against whom an arrest warrant has been issued in connection with incidents of violence following Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s conviction.

The Delhi police said that a team of Panchkula police had come with an arrest warrant for Honeypreet on a tip off that she was present in a house in Greater Kailash’s A-block in New Delhi. Police sources said that the raids were being conducted in Delhi and nearby areas of the National Capital Region (NCR).

However, the raid did not yield anything, DCP (Southeast) Romil Baaniya said. The raid was conducted at 7.30 am and only the caretaker was found. The house was registered in the name of Dera Sacha Sauda.

The police also said that any person giving any information leading to the arrest of the three and other “wanted” accused in connection with the incidents of violence in Panchkula on August 25, will be suitably rewarded and his/her identity will be kept secret.

The Haryana police said that a court in Panchkula, on Monday, issued arrest warrants against Honeypreet Insan, Dera spokesperson Aditya Insan, and Dera’s top functionary Pawan Insan in connection with the incidents of violence in Panchkula.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Haryana police had moved an application before the court, seeking arrest warrants of the three accused. Accepting the SIT’s application, the court has issued arrest warrants against them, DGP B.S. Sandhu said.

“If these three continue to evade arrest, then police will again move court with a plea to declare them as proclaimed offenders,” Mr Sandhu said.

Priyanka Taneja alias Honeypreet, the adopted daughter of the jailed Dera chief, tops the list of  “wanted” persons by the Haryana police in connection with incidents of violence that had followed Ram Rahim’s conviction in the rape cases.

Honeypreet, against whom a lookout notice was issued by the Haryana police, had been earlier booked at Sector 5 police station in Panchkula.

The police added her name in FIR number 345 as an accused in connection with the violence that took place in Panchkula on August 25. Her name has been included in the same FIR in which other Dera functionaries, Aditya Insan and Surinder Dhiman among others, had been booked for allegedly inciting violence and arson.

Haryana police has also been questioning arrested Dera functionaries, including Dilawar Insan and Pradeep Goyal, to get concrete information about her place of hiding.

Dilawar Insan, a key member of the Dera in Haryana’s Sirsa, was arrested from Sonipat, while Pradeep, another senior Dera Sacha Sauda functionary, was nabbed from Udaipur in Rajasthan by the Haryana police. Gurmeet Ram Rahim was convicted by the special CBI court in Panchkula on August 25, following which violence and arson had erupted.
